Fiming on the Christmas Special of Doctor Who had been disrupted by a 24-hour strike called today to protest at compulsory redundancies at BBC Wales.

The dispute is over plans to cut four editors' posts and the failure of the BBC to offer redeployment to the four individuals involved.

In addition to the effect on Doctor Who, shooting on Casualty and Pobol y Cwm has also been suspended and the BBC Radio Wales breakfast show, Good Morning Wales, was replaced by arts programming.
