Staff have recently reported witnessing TV programmes being produced in the BBC’s new central London studios.
“We thought all that nonsense had finished when Television Centre was closed at the end of March” one insider is quoted as saying.
The nasty business of actually making programmes had thought to have been moved to the extremities of the UK, with Salford used to placate those with a ‘northern accent’.
BBC press spokesman, Sebastian Russell, promised to look into the allegations.
“We will look into any such allegation. That sort of thing hasn’t happened for a long time. We are moving forward now, building shiny new headquarters in London and around the UK, setting up advisory boards and giving employment to think-tanks and consultancy companies”.
An official memo has warned staff not to leave scripts or ‘programme ideas’ lying around and to clear desks when leaving the office.
“We don’t need that sort of thing ‘polluting’ the clean lines of our desks in a new and invigorated BBC”, newly appointed BBC Director General, James Murdoch, explained.
