Thread Name: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding-Radio 2 Folk
Subject: RE: Mark Radcliffe replaces Mike Harding
What, in theory, is stopping me, say, from starting a production company and volunteering my radio-show production services to the BBC?

Absolutely nothing, Matt. The change to the BBC's charter and monopoly of programme making means that it must contract out a percentage of its programme output to independent makers.
