Working Lunch is over


April 26, 2010

The axe keeps on falling at the BBC, but it seems instead of falling where the money is spent on unseen things like expenses and salaries, it is falling on the one thing that the BBC needs more than anything else.

The cost cutting exercise is affecting content, with programmes being shut down with no regard to the viewers that have supported them over the years.

The latest victim is the popular business and money programme “Working Lunch”.

After sixteen years the show will be cut, leaving a thirty minute hole in the BBC’s lunch time schedule.

The show will finish at the end of July and will be replaced by a current affairs programme fronted by George Alagiah under the title of GMT.
