If ever there was a waste of BBC cash this would appear to be it! For a smaller amount of money why doesn't the BBC employ an Audio level monitoring team on each network? Even make it an automaton but do this rather than squandering licence payers hard earned money!

James Purnell (Director, Radio and Education) writes here in "Medium" that


"We’re experimenting with content for Voice.
....
a leading digital thinker said to us that he thought Voice would transform broadcasting. He pointed out that a fifth of searches on mobile are already being spoken. But he said that what was missing now was great content from people like the BBC.

We’re on the case.

We’re starting with small experiments, like the one from our R&D team — Inspection Chamber — which we’ll be launching shortly — but think the potential here could be significant.."

".......air more British-made programmes and spend the same on viewers in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as it does in England"

According to this report by TVBEurope by James Groves.

The full OFCOM report
"Holding the BBC to account for delivering for audiences- The BBC's performance"

may be read here.

"We have also added some new regulatory conditions. We expect the BBC to meet all the requirements we have set; if it does not, we will take steps to enforce them. ...

We will not accept falling standards on the BBC’s output and services. If the BBC falls short, we will step in for audiences."

Bill Rogers.. (trading as wdr), here, has updated his on-line blog....

in it, he puts forward a few worthy nominations.... what do you think of them?

Who do you think should be the new "Head Of News and Current Affairs"?


Prospective candidates, or their propsers could post a brief summary of their CV here....

but you must answer both of the following questions before progressing further.

1. "I think the BBC News department should be doing MORE ...."

2. "I think The BBC News department should be doing LESS ....*
