BBC spend £110 million on website


by David Allen

The recent work done on the BBC website appears to have gone slightly over budget, even with a budget of £81.6 million they still managed to squeeze out another £36 million by the year’s end in March 2008.

There were signs early on in the year that they would be going slightly over budget and so an estimate of around five per cent was offered, but the actual figure is almost forty eight per cent over the original budget.

The BBC trust who are supposed to look after the money raised through the licence fee have criticised the way that the top executives have allowed the management of BBC online services get so out of control.

The Trust has also asked executives to think about whether so much licence fee money should be spent providing a huge online service.
