BBC mags up for sale?

It has been a weekend for rumours but one I missed was in the Sunday Times.(ht-Judith Townend.

The BBC is considering the sale of its magazine division, which produces 50 titles, after being ordered to curb its money-making activities.

The magazine enterprise has always been seen as a feather in the cap of the corporation and to the anti BBC brigade,the subject of much derision.

Last year's launch of the Lonely Planet magazine was seen by some as the final straw.

The BBC has denied that sale plans are afoot.
