BSP pipe thread query


Out of curiosity (having nearly bought the wrong fitting today) can anyone explain the background to why a fitting designated 1/2 inch BSP relates to a thread diameter of roughly 3/4 inch?
My best guess is this the bore size of older iron/lead pipes.....?
TIA, Midge

Your guess is correct.
