BBC Digital Media Initiative project doomed to failure, Lord Patten was told

Technology chief warned trust chairman a year ago of concerns over scrapped content management system that cost £98.4m.
BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten was warned a year ago that the Digital Media Initiative technology project, recently scrapped after costing nearly £100m of licence fee money, was doomed to failure.
Bill Garrett, who worked as head of technology in the BBC's production arm, told the BBC Trust in May 2012 that he had "serious concerns" about how much money was being spent on DMI and the likely success of the project to create a digital content management system that removed the need for video tape editing.
DMI was eventually axed earlier in May by BBC director general Tony Hall after he said it had "wasted a huge amount of licence fee payers' money" – £98.4m. The BBC's chief technology officer, John Linwood, has also been suspended from his £287,000-a-year job.
