Threat to 22 drama jobs

BECTU has expressed its shock and sadness at the BBC's decision to put 22 jobs in drama production at risk of closure.

Commenting on the announcement, National Official, Anna Murray said: "BECTU is shocked and saddened at the decision to cut 22 jobs in BBC Drama. Our fear is that the BBC will lose, forever, the skills and experience these people bring to creating high-end drama which is not just great to watch but also contributes to the BBC's public service remit".
