The maths of the BBC's new investment in Northern Ireland - £11m over three years - is interesting. If spread evenly, building on last year's £53.3m on local programming and services, including 'indirect costs' (whatever they may be), Broadcasting House would have close to £57m to play with next financial year. But then, they'd also have to contribute to central re-investment and efficiency targets, running, I guess, at 2% a year. Which would take them back to £55.86m.
In 2018/19, they'd get £57.33m. And in 2019, £59.78m. Just saying..
