BBC Trust plans more reviews

The BBC Trust has announced it will undertake reviews of Five Live, Five Live Sports Extra, the Asian Network and BBC local radio – all in 2011.

It's part of the duty under its charter to review all of their UK public services within a five year period.

Last year, reviews included [link=]Radio 2 and 6 Music[/link], the [link=]BBC Nations[/link] and [link=]Radios 3, 4, and 7[/link].

The Trust says it will begin its reviews of Radio Five Live and Five Live Sports Extra early in 2011, followed by a separate review of TV services the BBC News Channel and BBC Parliament.

A spokesman said: "In line with the Trust's commitment to transparency it has published this information on its intended programme of service licence reviews ahead of publication in spring 2011 of the Trust's full workplan for 2011/12. The service reviews are a routine part of the Trust's work."

Consultant John Myers is currently undertaking an independent review of the corporation's popular music services, with talkSPORT owners UTV last month [link=]calling for a similar review[/link] to take place at Five Live.
