BBC saves £30m in cuts with more to come

The BBC has saved between £25m and £30m in administration cuts, which are being poured back into programme making.

LONDON (Brand Republic) - The BBC has saved between £25m and £30m in administration cuts, which are being poured back into programme making.

The savings were revealed yesterday by BBC director general Greg Dyke, who has announced further savings to come in 2001.

News of the cuts came as part of a review of Dyke’s first year in the director general’s job. In an interview on BBC television, Dyke said that the money had been saved chiefly by slashing the cost of management consultants by between £16m and £17m.

Dyke added that the full effects of the BBC''s investment in new programming will come on stream in the autumn schedule of 2002.

Dyke will today address BBC employees where he will give details of between £200m and £400m that is to be invested in what he called "outstanding programming".

It has also been reported that he will use today’s announcement to reveal news of 750 job cuts.
