Hi all

Missed the start and never gathered what the guy in the studio had managed to do for his son through the courts.

BBC website no help at all.

?

Are you talking about the Neary case? Listen again on i-player, 2 minutes in.

Thanks for that. Guess I looked to early for LA to be active.

Yes, they can be slow sometimes. I also wonder why they quite often say (on a variety of programmes) that "we will be putting details on the website". Why delay? Why not have the details to hand as they are mentioned on-air? Are they afraid that we will run off to look at the computer and stop listening to the programme? It is as if the promised web links are an after-thought, only to be done if the producer remembers to tell the assistant producer who tells researcher who tells the gopher who tells the YTS. If it's not their afternoon off.hmm

" ... if the producer remembers to tell the assistant producer who tells researcher who tells the gopher who tells the YTS. ..."

Just heard (on Media Show from 15/06) that R1/R1X has 52 staff for Newsbeat production... 30 second headlines and 15 minutes twice a day. Criticism came in because various commercial services have won Sony awards and are very slim in staff numbers by comparison...

Also that BBC News charges R2 nearly 2 million a year for writing the news script which R2 'news people' )aka announcers) then read out.
