Talk of who could be next to be made redundant is a bit crass if I’m honest.

A reminder that these current departures are from a round of voluntary redundancies.

As to the question as to who is going, some will go with a bang, some will leave the building with no-one except HR knowing. And as much as that will upset some forumers, that's their right to do so.

The sad thing at the moment is that it's not possible to have a big send off. In normal times someone who's as well known and liked as Harry would have a big do to see them off
DE88, TheMike and Ballyboy gave kudos

Maybe he can come back for that sofa tour, whenever they do it.

An employer could be on dodgy ground if overnight the same role is filled by a freelancer.


Thats not really true. One of the grounds for redundancies is employers choosing to carry out work in a different way. This includes replacing full time employees with casual or freelance staff.

Large swathes of BBC staff lost their jobs this way in the 90s when the BBC went down this route. Film Department closed down as did Design Department and camera crews, make up designers, set designers, costume designers etc disappeared from the payroll to be replaced by casuals and freelancers, often overnight. The same fate befell Visual Effects, Scenic Operations etc.

The current BBC timescale for staff to return after redundancy is 3 months for any casual/freelance work and one year for any kind of contract.

I know Peter Levy will only go if forced. He says he has no plans to retire. His show isn't double headed, so that's in his favour.

Wasn’t it double headed in the early 2000s

When Hull first launched you mean? Yes. They never replaced the second presenter when Helen Fospero left and it became Levy's show.

if I’m right, they moved the sofa in the 2004-2005 set to have the Victoria docks backdrop behind

I wonder if we’ve actually seen Harry host his last bulletin. He hasn’t been on for two weeks, and might just be on on Wednesday as a guest.

Now I’ve said that he’ll appear on Monday as normal
