I quit… Leaving the BBC

NEWSFLASH! Yesterday I handed in my resignation to my dept manager and officially resigned as Picture Editor for BBC Future Media & Technology (!) Tonight was the office Christmas do and so I took the opportunity to tell all my team and fellow members of staff…. Most replies were ‘I’m happy for you, but gutted for the rest of us’ which was nice.

So what will I be doing? Well, I’m off to Channel4 for more money, a better commute, a better working location and more interesting projects. As some of you may know I’ve spent the past 12 months trying to get a pan media project commissioned, I got it right to the top, after months of meetings, talking, thinking, writing, research and hard work, but it’s stalled somewhat due, not to the quality of the idea, but to the internal political flux that comes from being in the BBC. More on the history and fall out of this idea later, but as for now, I can’t wait another 12 months so me and my head full of other ideas are off to Channel4 where hopefully they can come to fruition.
