Why the BBC’s beyond satire
MORE evidence that the TV show W1A is a documentary rather than a spoof comedy.
Kirstin Furber, BBC Worldwide’s People Director ( who no doubt reports to the Director of Better), has delivered a gushing tribute to her heroic staff.
‘In one of the regions someone actually sang their inspirational story about working for the BBC!’ she says.
‘We were in one meeting and I could see in the room that there were tears. And I was facilitating and I had tears in my eyes, too, and had to get myself sorted again and get ready to talk about the next thing.’
Furber affirms: ‘ We are in the relationship business.’
Good news for the 1,000 BBC staff whose jobs will be axed under director general Tony Hall’s cuts proposals.
