Proms and Winbledon cut by BBC World Service

The BBC World Service, the U-K's radio service abroad, will no longer broadcast plays, the Proms or Wimbledon, as part of a cost-cutting exercise, the BBC has announced. The man charged with announcing the bad news is Craig Oliver, controller of the English speaking section. These were, he said, "difficult decisions". They will come into force in April, 2010. The BBC admitted the changes would not be popular with audiences but the4 cash strapped Beeb had to cut somewhere.
