Adding up

Quite a few BBC people undertake long journeys to work. Chris Condron, Director of Products and Services, North and Nations & Regions, is probably based at Salford, but often travels to London; he seems to need a taxi to and from the station then, to a home somewhere between Macclesfield and Poynton. 34 journeys in three months.

Mike Ford, is a BBC Programme Director working on Identity and Access Management. Not sure of his working BBC base, but home is a nice bungalow in Collingham, near Wetherby, West Yorkshire - so there's regular trains from Leeds and Doncaster to London, plus a bit of station car parking. New Head of Platform, Matt Grest, is another Yorkshire-homed techie with regular trips to London to claim, plus London hotels and meals.

But if you want to feel really tired, take a peek at Ken McQuarrie's exes. As peripatetic Director of Nations and Regions, there's plenty of trips and hotels from his home in Glasgow, to London, Cardiff and more. 57 mini-cabs. And trips to Hamburg, Geneva and Brussels for EBU stuff. Knackering.

  • Expenses hero this quarter: Alan 'Wavy' Davy, Controller Radio 3, for entertaining ten guests in a Proms box for just £32.40.
