Re: BBC should not charge for lrgacy programs.
How many employees does the Beeb have? And they all have salaries. The big cheese probably has a MASSIVE salary.
Undistorted reality from the BBC's own 2016 accounts: they had around 23,000 staff costing £990m. The soon to be abolished Trust cost £4.2m, exec board was a not-massive £3.65m - all increases over 2015 though. Although 'stars' were down £8m to £200m it seems the cost reductions the BBC have been making have been to content rather than staff. Utterly timid.
Average redundancy appears to be around 16 months pay - somewhat more than employment law requires.
On the plus side head of BBC Worldwide Tim Davie is paid more than the DG and none of it comes from the Licence Fee.
