BBC Monitoring faces grim cuts - report

by Andy Sennitt.

According to a report in Media Guardian, BBC Monitoring (BBCM) faces budget cuts and significant job losses as part of the coalition governments austerity measures. Chris Westcott, director of BBCM, told employees in a briefing on Monday that the situation is grim and the organisation is at a tipping point. It could even be closed down, he warned.

BBCM employs about 450 people in the UK and overseas, with a main base at Caversham Park in Reading. It tracks and translates press, TV and radio reports from 150 countries in more than 100 languages. The organisations role and funding is being examined by the government as part of it strategic defence and security review, the first for 12 years.
