On the waterfront

The BBC says it will be inviting indies to tender for TV coverage of the Proms from 2019; radio coverage stays with Auntie. The tender documents will be published later this month, but will include both the First and Last Nights, and performances on BBC2 and BBC4.  Those looking for tensions within Auntie (whether they exist or not) will note that the announcement comes from BBC Content, not from BBC Radio & Education, who are supposed to be in charge of Musick, from where'er it springeth.

We're still awaiting the results of the tender for that other BBC behemoth, Bargain Hunt; bids were invited back in February.
