BBC World Service

We, the undersigned, call upon the BBC to halt all its plans for the off-shoring of jobs and programmes in the World Service. We deplore the fact that there has been no proper consultation with staff and their trade unions. We deplore that there has been no opportunity for staff at Bush House to contribute to a dynamic plan for the development of the BBC's international broadcasting activities. We believe that the employment conditions being offered exploit journalists in developing nations, and may not give proper protection for their safety, and that the BBC is surreptitiously dismantling the World Service in a way that may damage its editorial credibility.

    5 years ago Comments: The World Service of the BBC is a jewel in the crown of what most of us feel to be a civilised and enlightened country. What are these savings for? To make rich people richer at the expense of our country's reputation and the needs of the world in general. It isn't good enough pleading some passing financial malaise... the money can be found easily enough for other less deserving causes. It is a disgrace and incomprehensible that such a valuable service and great advertisment for the values of GB should be under threat.
