MIN is an aggregate function it is normally used with GROUP BY.

  SELECT region, MIN(name)
    FROM bbc
   GROUP BY region 

With a GROUP BY region statement each region shows up just once. The MIN column gives the "smallest" name in the region in the context of strings this is the first name alphabetically.

SELECT region, MIN(name)
  FROM bbc
 GROUP BY region
