February 12, 2010

BBC Vision, the corporation’s TV and video content division, is to cut back on digital spending to protect its programme budget. Jana Bennett, the BBC Vision director, told a meeting of television producers that the corporation wants to reduce digital costs and focus on ensuring that the BBC continues to make high-quality programmes.

The BBC director general, Mark Thompson, is conducting a strategic review of all the corporation’s activities that will lead to cuts in some content and programming, and possibly in some digital TV, radio and online services.
