Thompson announces BBC cuts

Around 3,000 jobs will go at the BBC, says Director General Mark Thompson. Most will be in professional services, including human resources, training, finances and legal services. In addition, several departments including Children's TV and Radio will move to a new home in Manchester.

BBC News has a good summary of the changes, while The Stage concentrates on a pledge that more money will now be spent on original programming.
