The Mail points out what cheapskates the BBC are

The BBC has spent more than £100,000 in three years on alcohol including spirits, beer and cider and sparkling wine.
A Freedom of Information act request revealed a total spend of £115,049 in 2013, 2014, and 2015 on wine, beer, cider and spirits.
This includes all the money spent production and non-production related-costs, so can include drinks for guests.

Well, yes, when you turn up the the Green Room you’re offered a drink. Tea? Sandwich? Wine?

Given the number of guests they have spread across the channels that all seems pretty cheap, doesn’t it?

  1. It seems surprisingly cheap, to the point of being hard to believe. The company I work for has 200 odd employees and we would spend ten thousand plus over three years, and we wouldn’t have the same level of entertaining.

  2. But do the beeb make these programs where there is a green room? Or do they subcontract them out to private programme makers who bear the cost of keeping the guests merry?

    In other words, is this hundred grand bar bill only for the bosses Xmas party?

    Hell, I reckon during the time I was drinking I spent north of £100,000 on booze. Admittedly that was over thirty years but there’s only one of me.
