Changes to the BBC's TV channels:

Protecting BBC One and Two in peak time, albeit with small reductions in entertainment programming and acquisitions;
Making BBC One the channel for all new general daytime programmes;
Changing BBC Two's daytime schedule to feature international news and current affairs programmes at lunchtime. Other parts of the daytime schedule would be repeats of mainly factual programmes, including science, history, natural history and arts, as well as live sport;
Re-focusing BBC Three and BBC Four to play supporting roles to the two bigger channels; and
Replacing the HD channel with an HD version of BBC Two to broadcast alongside the existing BBC One HD channel.

Changes to the BBC's radio stations:

Protecting Radio 4 by keeping its underlying budget stable, excluding the impact of productivity savings;
Greater sharing of news bulletins between Radio 2 and 6 Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and Radio 3 and 4;
Reducing the amount of original drama, live music and specially recorded concerts at lunchtime on Radio 3, and reviewing the BBC's orchestras and singers;
Reinvestment in the Proms to maintain quality;
Focusing Radio 5 Live on core output of news and sport;
A new more focused Asian Network with a 34 per cent reduction in its content spend; and
Making savings in radio distribution costs through long term changes to Medium Wave and Long Wave.

Changes to programming and services in the nations and regions:

For TV, protecting underlying investment in news programming; producing fewer non-news programmes and rebroadcasting more of them to UK audiences; and increasing investment in network programming produced across Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales;
For nations radio, reducing investment in non-news programming and focusing on peak-time; and
For English local radio, focusing spend on peak-time programmes, but with increased sharing across regions in off-peak slots.

So... keeping "Newsdrive" type shows with the rest beamed in from London. Brilliant.

Delivering Quality First: an hour of BBC2 time on Sunday wasted asking whether it's going to snow in Britain this winter. The answer was: at some point in winter it is very likely to snow somewhere in Britain.

Delivering Shovels First morelike.

Even worse, I watched it

Does it feature Positive Weather Solutions?

This topical programme taps into the nation's obsession with the weather and asks whether we are heading for another 'snowmageddon' as experienced in the previous two years.

Can forecasters give us warning this time around? How does the 'olde' weather lore compare with the supercomputers? And what are we doing across Britain to prepare ourselves as we head into winter?

'Will It Snow?' predicts what another extreme cold snap would spell for Britain's economy as it puts the science of weather forecasting to the test and asks the experts what we are in store for between now and spring.

It used to snow more than that every bloody winter. #kickaballinthestreet

what are we doing across Britain to prepare ourselves as we head into winter?

Probably 'sod all' as usual.

I have booked my market stall on the frozen Thames. When I was young there were two or three Frost Fairs even in summer, when the golden corn stood tall and you walk around naked till November, plucking ripe apples from the hedgerows. The partridges flew into your mouth feathered and cooked. It were a grand ride down, mind.

there are apples still on the tree i can see from the office window. nb i am fully clothed.

"News" item on phones going off during concert performances on BBC Breakfast was followed by a Q & A with 2 (2!) people about this. What's there to say, other than "it's annoying"?

I know this is Media Theory 101, but the way it sort of flattens things out infuriates me, mounting tension with Iran being made to seem equivalent with some stupid nonsense they all grin and simper over. STOP GRINNING!!!
