BBC unusually quiet after new job application form goes live.

The BBC' s human resources department has admitted changing its job application form for the first time in 50 years. Wendy Attenborough, Head of HR, explained that the BBC set up a panel of Stake Holders in November last year, in light of paedophile and sex scandals at the BBC, to see if there was a way of weeding out these perverts.

After a few months of burning the midnight oil, the panel have come up with two additions to its standard job application. The first: 'Have you ever sexually or forced yourself on a work colleague/ member of the public in a previous role?' And the second: 'Are you a paedophile?' seem to have nailed the issue of dodgy prospective candidates.

The panel were stumped whether to include the questions under the sections 'hobbies' or 'about me'.

A big box has been added just under the questions that directs the applicant to supply more details should they answer yes. Affirmative answers would naturally lead to the Disclosure Barring Service.

Wendy Attenborough, delighted with the new form, went on to highlight the new font and Logo suggested by the panel. We at the BBC believe that New Times Roman in mauve to be the nicest looking form of all.
