BBC Strategy Review: a brief round up
As a follow up to yesterday's round up ("Corporation's web pages are to be halved") you might be interested in a few things that have been published this morning.
Mark Thompson has blogged on the About the BBC blog about the Strategy Review:
"The BBC has one mission: to inform, educate and entertain audiences with programmes and services of high quality, originality and value. That is not up for debate. What today is about is how we are going to deliver that mission."
You can download the Strategy Review from the BBC Trust website and read all 70 odd pages for yourself. This is one section (on page 36) that caught my attention and perhaps explains the cutting the number of webpages in half confusion.
"The number of sections on the site (its 'top-level directories', which the public find through addresses in the form: bbc.co.uk/sitename) will be halved by 2012, with many sites closed and others consolidated, so that the sharpened focus of BBC Online will be visible in the structure of the service..."
There's now a 12 week public consultation during which you can have your say before the Trust publishes its final conclusions.
The Guardian live blogged the unveiling of the Strategy Review this morning. There's also the hastag #bbcreview on Twitter if you'd like to follow the action there.
Paul Murphy is still the Editor of of the BBC Internet blog (as far as he knows).
