February 18, 2013 at 3:53 AM (PT)
The NATIONAL UNION OF JOURNALISTS has called a one-day strike against the BBC over the compulsory layoff of 30 staff members at BBC SCOTLAND, 5LIVE, THE ASIAN NETWORK and BBC WORLD SERVICE.
The strike caused RADIO 4 to run a repeat of the "TODAY" program, and "THE WORLD AT ONE," "THE WORLD TONIGHT," and "PM" will not air TODAY, replaced by documentary reruns. On Talk RADIO 5LIVE, the station did not air the overnight show or early morning news reports and is proceeding with fill-in hosts.
