How would you do that? 'Cos I could never get it much below 50mins and
a district to central line change.
But anyway, yeah, the BBC's great and their employee/consultant
selection procedure at least in NMT is solid so you end up working
with smart, creative, and interesting folks. Or at least I did when I
was there. The only problem is their infrastructure is (or was when I
was there) change-managed to the point of appearing absurd and has
been a factor in causing the BBC to lose frustrated but talented folk.
That frustration is also I think partly due to unrealistic developer
It's a cool place and the stuff they do has the potential to impact
millions of people, and in some cases the very development of UK
