BBC – Request to Get Involved

BBC – Request to Get Involved

BBC – Request to Get Involved

Service Network has been contacted by the BBC who are preparing the groundwork for an autumn television documentary and they have asked for your help. The programme for BBC 1 will be transmitted in September/October and will focus on the impact of public sector spending cuts on the North East and Cumbria.

As part of this, the BBC is looking to explore the supply chain between the public and private sectors. They want to find companies who have laid off staff because they have either lost contracts with the public sector or there is uncertainty over future work. The BBC would also be interested to hear from businesses that have put staff on to short-time working  /  annualised hours / reduced salaries etc., again as a result of the public sector squeeze.

The objective is to attempt to trace the impact through the supply chain from the private company (and individual) hit by the spending squeeze to the public sector organisation making the cut.   In addition, the BBC is also looking for an audience for the programme and would welcome contact from individuals who want to share their views and generally get involved.

Anyone wishing to participate should contact:

Political Correspondent,
