BBC paid bonuses for failed £100m IT project 

BBC bosses in charge of its failed digital media project were paid bonuses totalling £18,000, it has emerged.

The project, which intended to digitise the BBC’s archives and eradicate the use of video tapes, collapsed earlier this year at a cost of almost £100m.

A report published on Wednesday said the BBC should have realised the scheme was set to fail two years before.

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request has now revealed bonuses were paid during the project’s troubled lifespan.

It showed £18,000 in performance-related benefits was paid to an unspecified number of directors and senior managers involved in Digital Media Initiative (DMI) between 2008 and May this year.
