The BBC is shedding thousands of jobs to cut costs. People like Jonafan Woss and Jeremy Clarkson are looking like losing their jobs for being too expensive.
However, the mini-budget the other week announced new farsi and arabic channels from the BBC but there’s no mention of cutbacks on that front. Nor is there any indication whether they’ll stop the totally unnecessary cost of broadcasting both English and Welsh versions of the same sports events.
Flicking through the channels this afternoon I came across the same rugby match in English on BBC1 and in Welsh on S4C (courtesy of the BBC). I expect it was on BBC Radio Wales in English and BBC Cymru in Welsh as well.
How much does this cost on average, I wonder?
