BBC Annual Report Reveals Trust Still Down

The recently released BBC annual report has revealed that trust levels are still down following the Jimmy Savile scandal of 2012.

Director general Tony Hall of the BBC stated in a press conference for the launch of the company's annual review, that they were still seeing a lack of trust.

This, he believes, was not helped by the recent funding agreement in the government's budget.

The agreement stated that the BBC would take control of funding free TV licences for the over 75s, as well as a review which will be held later in the year regarding the future of the licence fee.

The government also called for a review on the programmes broadcast and made by the BBC, stating that there may be a narrower range of programmes in the future.

Hall said of this: "I have real difficulty with the idea of artificial restrictions on creativity - after all, the last time politicians tried to be creative we ended up with the Millennium Dome. So it will be hard to support any proposal that stops us finding the next Strictly, the next Bake Off or - dare I say it - the next Top Gear."

Although trust was down, the BBC has increased the number of staff in the financial year 2014/2015, despite talk of cost-cutting.

Hall himself said that the corporation would look to save £50M by cutting management positions and around 1, 000 jobs.

Despite this, in 2014 / 2015, the number of people employed by the BBC rose from 18, 647 to 18, 974.

For the same period, the BBC paid £976.5M in wages; an increase from the £955M spent the previous year.

Despite the increase in wage payments, the number of employees earning more than £500, 000 decreased from 14 people to 9 people.

The amount of money taken home by employees being paid more than £1M rose from £4.2M to £5.1M, while the amount of money being spent on paying employees earning between £500, 000 and £750, 000 fell from £6.5M to £2.9M.
