BBC News hardest hit by strike

By Dominic Ponsford
Today’s 24-hour BBC strike appears to have most impact on the corporation’s news output.
Whereas top DJs like Terry Wogan, on Radio Two,
and Chris Moyles, on Radio 1, reported for work – the Radio Four Today
programme was off air.
The main 1pm, 6pm and 10pm national BBC One news bulletins were
expected to be cut down to just 15 minutes each.
Radio Four’s later news programmes PM and the
World Tonight have been replaced by documentary and archive programmes.
On Radio Five 30 minutes of live programming has been followed by 30
minutes of pre-recorded items each hour. Breakfast show presented Nicky
Campbell was away but Shelagh Fogarty did report for work.
According to the BBC there was “serious disruption” today to BBC
Scotland output with TV news bulletins off the air.
