W1A
Series 3 Episode 3
BBC Two, 10pm BST
The search for new ways of saving money at the BBC. Having dismissed the idea of losing programmes about gardening as a possible solution the renewal team propose that the cutting of the BBC Big Swing Band might send out a useful message, but what had started in a strategy meeting as an idea with potential turns into a major PR disaster.
In this context the BBC head of values Ian Fletcher's first visit to the Department of Media, Culture and also Sport does not get off to the best of starts, especially when it is revealed that the minister is a 'keen trombonist'.
Meanwhile, PR guru Siobhan Sharpe is leading the creative journey towards launching BBC Me and head of news Neil Reid has a problem of his own when the latest version of the BBC's automatic live subtitling software is shown to have some major defects - such as getting the spelling of proper names embarrassingly wrong.
With guest appearances from Lenny Henry, Louise Minchin, Dan Walker and Jeremy Paxman.


Viewers in Northern Ireland will see the episode at 10pm on Friday 6th October.
