The Trireme-

THIS month's Trireme Award, for terms and conditions "worse than I was last chained to the oars" in the words of one freelance, goes to the BBC. Its "shadow scheme" (sounds like something from The X-Files!) pays would-be scriptwriters £1000 for a "trial script", estimated at an average of approximately £2.38 an hour. See here for the full story.
