The Broadcasters' Audience Research Board, or BARB, is the organisation that compiles television ratings in the United Kingdom. It was created to replace a previous system, where the BBC and ITV companies compiled their own ratings. It is owned by the BBC, the ITV companies, Channel 4, Five, BSkyB and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising. Participating families have a box on top of their TV which tracks the programmes they watch.
