Procrustean bed scheduling and the BBC Proms


This post is on 'Links and things' ~ 'On an Overgrown Path' has the reports of the opera Edelat Square winnning an award. Proms coming up next week, but I'm finding it difficult to find enthusiasm with Radio 3's current Procrustean bed scheduling.

My thoughts entirely.

Today's Media Guardian reports that the total BBC annual income is £4bn ($8bn), and that the staff head-count is 23,037.

The salary of BBC director general Mark Thompson is £788,000 ($1.6m) including benefits and other remuneration totalling £164,000 ($328k).
