BBC to send a hundred staff to Euro 2008


by David Allen

It may seem strange, but despite the fact that England are not even playing the Euro 2008 Championships being held in Austria and Switzerland in June, the BBC is still planning to send out over a hundred staff to cover the games.

One of the latest recruits to get paid to comment on the games is former England manager Steve McClaren, who actually failed to get his team to the championships, but will still be going courtesy of the licence fee payer.

There is even more trouble brewing for both the BBC and ITV as they are planning to show over thirty games during the evening prime time TV slots, meaning that many other programmes that attract regular viewers are likely to moved or cancelled to accommodate these matches.
