The BBC is to move some of its key departments and staff outside London to make the corporation more reflective of the UK as a whole.
It said its plans represent a "top-to-bottom change" and its biggest transformation in decades.
Entire departments and news divisions will be moved to Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Glasgow and Salford.

The BBC's 22,000 employees, many of whom are currently working from home, were briefed on the plans on Thursday.
The plans include:
A new version of BBC One tailored for audiences in Yorkshire, the North West and the North East of England.
Two new soap-style network drama series - one from the North of England and another from one of the Nations - produced over the next three years.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
