A response on behalf of the BBC ...

A few recent horror stories on Arcati about the BBC's failure to keep their talent in the loop has elicited this explanation, presumably from a BBC PAYE-person ...

"Can I just say that, as far as I understand it, most of these programmes are made by independent production companies, and then broadcast by the BBC. The Corporation has no direct contact with the participants. It is therefore up to the independent producer to inform participants when a programme is being broadcast."

uh-huh. Mine was a BBC Drama department all handmade. No independent companies involved - it was in the days before those existed. The repeat was BBC too. Sorry.
