image for BBC face big cuts!
If you notice, there is only one car in the car park, so staff are really cutting back

The culture minister, Jeremy Hunt warns the BBC that austere measures are very likely in the next 12 months. It is highly probable that the already extortionate TV licence will be reduced by as much as 50% with senior managers and presenters being the hardest hit. This is to reflect the current economic downturn.

Mr Hunt told In Seine News; "What the public really wants are well made programmes that are of the highest quality and so good that they are easily sold to the rest of the world. Currently, there are far too many repeats, far too many! Therefore, I propose that each time the BBC repeats a programme it will be asked to repay the licence payer a fine of 1% of the total cost of a licence.

Presently, the BBC are showing that many repeats that they owe the public £25 billion.

Make IN SEINE's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
