BBC Radio strike to hit shows

Some of the BBC’s popular radio programmes are under threat of being taken off air by strike action by up to 500 BBC radio production staff later this month. The strike, in protest over job cuts, will see staff walk out in London, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester. 100 people are likely to lose their jobs thanks to a planned merger of production jobs. February 15th and 23rd are the dates for the planned walk-out.
