Many BBC programmes are made by outside companies.
With New Tricks the titles at the end of the programme show it is made
by a company called Headstrong Pictures owned by Warner Brothers for BBC.
How does this system work? Are the programmes scripted by BBC and
produced for them and they then own the programme? Can such programmes
if no longer wanted by BBC then be offered to other TV companies?

No, simply commissioned by the BBC, so either farmed out after a
tendering process, or the production company has approached the Beeb
(and normally ITV, 4, 5, Sky etc also) with an idea for a programme

Can such programmes
if no longer wanted by BBC then be offered to other TV companies?

The copyright usually remains with the original commissioning broadcaster.

screened on Horror channel?

and itv reruns and us crap, but who runs Horror?

Dunno, but BBC Worldwide have probably sold them a job lot of Dr Whos,
nothing to stop them doing that, and it all helps top up Tom Baker's
pension.

AIUI The Horror channel belongs to the CBS stable (which in its other genre
shows almost exclusive US fodder)

can't help with the rest

The outside companies pitch an idea to the BBC. They know that if it is
to have any chance of being accepted it must have left wing bias.

What does that do for its export potential ?
A friend in America wrote a Pilot in 1986 of a hoped for series about
three retired detectives to investigate cold cases to star Cary Grant as
the director, with James Garner, Burt Reynolds and Charlie Callas.
Unfortunately Grant died and it came to nothing.

In the case of exports to the USA they just cut out all the bits with atheists, communists, and other undesirables and replace them with commercial breaks.
