HR (Human Resources) We used to call that department HD (Human Disasters)
Secondly. Nothing wrong with regional/local broadcasting. Jolly good. But, spending millions of pounds re-locating the entire sport output to Manchester, a year before the Olympics in London in 2012 is just bonkers. Just imagine what the hotel costs will be.
20 odd years ago, they moved the bi-weekly music recording sessions of the BBC Big Band from Maida Vale to Pebble Mill in Birmingham. The fact that all the band members lived in Surrey didn't seem to matter. Added to the fact that they were mainly freelance players and worked in the evening on the top West End shows, Cats, Starlight Express etc.
Schlepping 60 musos up to Brum and back twice a week seemed a bit stupid. Did the tunes recorded have a Brummy accent? Was it a waste of money? Discuss.
