Don't know

The BBC's stuttering Charter Renewal matrix (check against delivery) today gives us another look at new 2020 Diversity targets, to prove that BBC Management is more right on than Ed 'Mr Piano' Vaizey at the DCMS thinks it is.

The one that's a bit of a puzzle is the 8% LGBT staff and on-air portrayal target. Target implies some sort of stretch, and, sort of instinctively, many insiders would say Auntie was well ahead in terms of employment.

New joiners were first invited to declare their sexual orientation and religious beliefs in anonymous diversity monitoring forms from 2010. In 2011, there was a voluntary staff survey, and just over 50% of employees took part. Of those, 48.6% said they were heterosexual/straight, 5% preferred not to say, and a whopping 42% opted for the rather unhelpful 'unknown'.
