BBC Cuts

The BBC is undergoing significant cutbacks. “The changes to the BBC’s professional services divisions will result in the loss of 980 jobs through a combination of redundancy and staff turnover. A further 750 posts will be outsourced, resulting in 1,730 job losses in total – a 46% reduction in headcount. Overall cost savings across the BBC are expected to reach £355m – £35m more than the original £320m target.”
