BBC uses slide show to announce job cuts
And this one is of us on holiday
So, just how did BBC chiefs tell their new media staff that Auntie was cutting back 100 jobs?
"We were all gathered in a room and showed a Powerpoint presentation," whispered one devastated insider. They weren't even called in individually for a cosy one-to-one with management.
It seems that during the slide show one screen-shot showed the current number of staff - the next showed a rather depleted projected figure. Ho hum.
A spokesman for the Beeb explained that the slide show was a "presentation on our thinking".
And the reason staff were told as a group? "We don't yet who is to be affected," said our man at the Beeb. That explains it. ®
