If the BBC was abolished, I imagine it would either be replaced by a subscription-based model, or advertising.
Personally, I would prefer a halfway-house solution like SVT in Sweden have. They air adverts between programmes, but not during.
SVT is barred from showing advertisements. What they can do, and which they do, is accept programme sponsorships that help finance big ticket programmes such as Melodifestivalen and sporting events.
Regulations around the commercial activities of the BBC should be relaxed as this would provide a stronger additional revenue stream whilst not polluting it with on air advertising.
