Get with the project

"BBC Radio needs to be able to effectively compete [techie split infinitive] with digital native media organisations who are less constrained by legacy technology and delivery platforms."

Thus adverts for staff to join a current BBC 'programme', delivering what they're calling "Internet-Fit Radio". It's coming to the end of a one-year design phase (thus demonstrating further the BBC's lack of agility). From April next year, it should move into a three- to -five-year implementation programme, rebuilding infrastructure and refitting studios.

This programme comes some twenty years after general acceptance that the internet and internet protocol transmission is here to stay. Spookily, over the next five years, BBC Radio Production, home to this project, has to get real and compete with indies for the right to make 60% of current network output.
