The BBC is planning to cut 2,000 jobs and reshape its TV schedules in order to cut 20% from its budget over the next five years.

No channels will close but some money will be reinvested in new programmes.

Director General Mark Thompson gave the details to the BBC's media correspondent, Torin Douglas.
