Some bad news – according to The Guardian “BBC Resources’ Birmingham and Bristol bases will be closed”.
Mark Thomas, the BBC Resources chief executive, has apparently emailed staff to explain that jobs will be lost across the corporation’s commercial post-production and studios arm and that the Birmingham premises are no longer commercially viable.
As the BBC Resources website says:
BBC Post Production Birmingham is home to some of the best Drama, Magazine and Contemporary Factual programmes on television. From ‘Doctors’ and ‘The Afternoon Plays’ to ‘Coast, ‘Countryfile’, ‘Gardeners World’ â€˜Donâ€™t Die Youngâ€™, ‘The Sky At Nightâ€™, â€˜Indian Food Made Easyâ€™, and ‘To Buy Or Not To Buy’
