BBC Bristol studios 'could be sold'

The BBC could move out of its current Bristol studios because they “might not be suitable in the digital age”, the Evening Post reports.

The corporation has launched a review to find a site “fit for the 21st-century digital future”.

The current three-acre site, which houses 730 staff, could fetch up to £15 million for the corporation, the paper reports. However, refurbishing the site is also an option.

More than 100 BBC jobs are slated to be cut in Bristol as part of the be lost at the nearly 2,000 job cuts that the corporation announced in October. The cuts include 48 in the documentaries and features department and 57 in the Natural History Unit, the Evening Post reports.
