BBC Radio 1 offers apology

Two national radio networks are to broadcast an apology after the latest BBC Trust update found Radio 1 guilty of encouraging audience participation for a pre-recorded show, and 6 Music guilty of using a staff member as a competition winner.

The BBC is offering compensation for listeners who took part in Russell Brand and Jo Whiley's radio shows during certain dates in 2006 which breached editorial standards.

They happened with Jo Whiley on May 12th, and Russel Brand on April 9th 2006.

BBC Director-General Mark Thompson said: "I am pleased to have been able to report considerable progress in delivering our action plan, which we will continue to pursue with vigour."
