I find that hard to believe.

No idea about anything to do with Canada Drag Race, but is was pap like that, that made us see that it's all rubbish and not worth paying them for.rjb wrote:Ive just renewed mine but if the beeb persist with rubbish like Canada Drag Race it could well be my last time.
I'm not sure it follows that Capita's sale of local offices affects the way they do business with the BBC. The EOs will continue to work from home, like they have been for the last 6 months and may have been since the get-go, for all I know.mercalia wrote:so Crapita is closing lots of local offices ( where the home visitors are based?) so makes a nonsense of the job they do for the BBC?

Same goes for the grey-haired & creased old Mr. Linelaker - he is apparently nearly as old as me... I cannot begin to understand why their respective contributions are worth an annual coughing to the tune of two and three-quarter million pounds. But there you go - just goes to show how much I have in common with The Great Unwashed. I suppose they, TGU, that is, need something to keep what passes for their minds off more difficult subjects, like the way the country is run! Stops ' em from revolting!
And I suppose, on the plus side, the longer Ms. Ball / Mr. Lanklower are busy doing their thing, the less likely they are to crop up on R3 & 4. Horrah!

who the heck is Zoe Ball?
No wonder they are all smiling

The Beeb 'saw the light' in the late eighties / early nineties and got rid of a ton of tech. & production staff. These guys all went off to work as freelancers, or if more ambitous, started a production company. I remember sharing a flat with a sound engineer, who worked silly hours when he had a contract, and then had weeks with nothing. Not a pleasant way to make a living...people working for the BBC
