News at Six Complaint Stage 1: Viewer Response 3

Further to your email of 06/08/2014 re. complaint CAS-2832936-Y1CMD4 I wish to make a separate complaint re. the statement that transcripts for ‘BBC News at Six’ are not available “due to the prohibitive costs”.

As a TV producer I know all news programmes routinely produce computer transcripts of running orders, P-as-Cs, gallery and Autocue scripts. As an ICT consultant I know the cost of making such computer text available is minimal, not prohibitive.
