BBC Technology Head Sacked

The head of BBC Technology has been sacked over “misuse of hospitality” used for entertaining clients of one of the corporation’s commercial operations.

BBC Technology, which provides the backbone for the corporation’s websites and IT support as well as services for third parties including 3 and ESPN, was put up for sale in November. The division was formed in 2001 to provide technical support to the corporation and compete with big commercial players such as IBM and EDS.
