The BBC is preparing a list of cuts it says it needs to make in order to continue providing free service for the over-75s. The cuts, worth £475 million, are due to be published in the summer.
Among the assets listed for abolition, on drafts seen by our source, is the BBC Concert Orchestra.
As ever under Tony Hall’s weak management, any proposal will be abolished once it attracts a sufficient level of public opposition.
This is an early warning. Prepare to go to the barricades.
