BBC journalists: action of protest at job cuts

A 24-hour strike in protest at job cuts by &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/10/03/37672_.html ' target=_blank>BBC journalists and other workers has brought disruption to TV and radio schedules and online services.

The British state-funded broadcaster's flagship Today radio program was the most high-profile victim of the industrial action and was replaced by recorded items on Monday. The TV Breakfast program ran with a basic service and one presenter.

But some stars of BBC radio, such as Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter Chris Moyles and Radio 2's Terry Wogan, broke the picket line at Broadcasting House in central London and worked as normal, reports CNN News.

The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and two other unions representing technical workers were striking to protest against plans by BBC Director General Mark Thompson to cut about 20 percent of its workforce, or about 4,000 jobs.
