Times for a Change

End of an era at the BBC? One of the longest-established perks of working at the Corporation was the ability to receive free copies of its TV listings magazine, the Radio Times.

Well, no more. A memo has gone to staff informing them that “as of July 1, free Radio Times copies normally distributed throughout BBC buildings will cease”.

But, what’s this? Copies are available at a staff discount. Nineteen pounds for half a year’s worth of the weekly title.
