Post categories:

This morning Mark Thompson launched a consultation with staff on how the BBC can deliver the highest quality programmes and content to audiences to the end of the Charter in 2017.

He said: 

“The BBC is being realistic taking prompt action to make sure it meets future funding limits, while continuing to aim to devote 90 per cent of spending on content and getting it to the public.

“Rather than imposing these efficiency savings and reductions in a top down manner we are asking people who work at the front line to say how these can best be achieved.

“The tough but realistic settlement we achieved gives us certainty of funding for six years. However, the BBC is not immune to the economic climate and it will require tough decisions to achieve these savings.”
