BBC zombie invasion counter measures.

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please could you provide me with any information the BBC holds on how it is prepared for the eventuality of a zombie apocalypse/invasion and the associated costs to the licence payer for such preparations.

What training has been provided to BBC staff and its subcontractors to defend themselves from the undead?

What weaponry does the BBC have access to and who are the appropriate licence holders for the arsenal?

What measures are in place to ensure the continued broadcast of television programmes during an invasion and would there be a partial refund of the licence fee for any downtime of broadcasts?

What are the locations of any safehouses the BBC intend to use during an invasion?

What measures are in place to protect BBC owned property from attack?

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

doyle williams

I think they've got special stun guns... that can eliminate zombies in less than 20 seconds and shoot them on the far side of a party wall.

Doyle - Fortunately the BBC staff canteen and all outside broadcast teams are routinely provided with a sufficient supply of salt to deal with any anticipated Zombie threat.

All BBC/sub-contracted catering staff are fully trained in the application of salt against Zombies.

As an additional safeguard, all visitors to BBC premises are provided free of charge with individual, single Zombie sepecific, sachettes of salt at all catering facilities - and can retain these for personal use when leaving those facilities.

Given the average levels of salt already existing in the human bloodstream, cross-infection is highly unlikely and this also provides a degree of both natural immunity and an immediate counter-measure on being bitten.

The BBC takes the personal safety of both staff and visitors very seriously - ensuring that appropriate stocks of garlic and silver nitrate are also available on its premises (providing additional protection against Werewolf/Vampire related incidents).

Sleep easy, your licence fees are being well spent.

Thanks Becky but I don't have a BBC TV licence. Never will.

As long as it is not using licence tax payers money, they can fight the zombies anyway they like.
