[edit]

ALL production of TV programmes halted at BBC headquarters last night.

The dispute, which has already cost nearly £1 million, now threatens live shows over Christmas.

The effects will be seen this week in lost and disrupted programmes.

Among the shows to be hit are "The Generation Game," "Blue Peter," "Parkinson," "Multi-Coloured Swap Shop," "Dr Who" and "Nationwide."

Production stopped at the Shepherd's Bush studios when the only crew of technicians still operating walked out on 24-hour strike at the end of their shift.

A total of 540 studio technicians have been "taken off the payroll" since the dispute started with the sound blackout of the Miss World contest.

The technicians—members of the Association of Broadcasting and Allied Staffs—are angry at the BBC's attempt to introduce a new staff grading system.

Last night union leaders were meeting privately in a London hotel to plan their next move.
