BBC Drops Attempt to Move to All Digital Production and Archives

$149 million project not worth it


The BBC said Friday that it is axing a $149 million (£98.4 million) technology project, which was set to make all production and archive operations fully digital.

A review launched in October found that the so-called Digital Media Initiative wasn't going well enough and that it "was not going to deliver on its stated objectives," the public broadcaster said.
