Bectu: BBC faces 'deterioration in quality'

The BBC is planning to cut 2,000 jobs and reshape its TV schedules in order to cut 20% from its budget over the next five years.

No channels will close but some money will be reinvested in new programmes

Media commentator Steve Hewlett told the BBC's David Sillito that groups of viewers and listeners will notice "things they have come to love and enjoy will go".

Gerry Morrissey, general secretary of the technicians' union Bectu, said the BBC now faces "a huge deterioration in quality".
