Glastonbury coverage costs public £1.5m January 29, 2010

The BBC are in trouble again after it was establlished that they forked out a whopping £1.5million to send a total of 227 reporters to last years Glastonbury festival.

The National Audit Office are currently investigating whether the cost was excessive and deciding whether we – the license fee payers – are getting a good deal. Read the NME’s coverage of the story here.

Looking at this argument from a different perspective, one could argue that this is merely just a drop in the water when you consider that the BBC pay out over £10million per season on Doctor Who (which has never been the same since Billie Piper left).
