Why the BBC’s be­yond satire

Daily Mail - - Life -

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.
