My back-of-envelope calculations on BBC HR numbers have made a Freedom Of Information enquiry - and answer.

The BBC HR department did boast just over 758 full-time posts at the end of April. But that figure included "approximately 300 trainees and apprentices across the BBC", and staff working for The Academy (training, to you and me). The response doesn't give the exact figure used to benchmark HR to staff ratios as supplied to the National Audit Office, which are targeted at 1:72 for 2017/18. It reminds us that "HR has achieved a significant reduction over the last three years as part of the HR transformation programme which has resulted in 30% reduction in HR costs to the organisation."

Would that summary of cost reductions also include "re-structuring costs", or are they held centrally ?
