Many in England are in an uproar over a new plan the BBC has to relocate its staffers who own homes from London into other "regions and nations." BBC is reportedly moving five departments including sport, children's programmes, and Radio 5 Live to Salford Quays, Greater Manchester.

BBC says that it intends to relocate half of its staff outside London by 2016. The uproar comes from the "guaranteed house purchase scheme" which will guarantee employees who own homes will get up to 95% of the market value for their homes.

BBC says that it will incur any loss on the price and will pay for the numerous fees that go along with home selling. The move is expected to cost an estimated £200 million. Many in the UK feel that this is an inappropriate use of funds from the TV License fee.
