Bingo Protest was a "Joke"

Published måndag 13 november 2006 kl 15.14

When Swedish Television’s new program “Bingo Royal” premiered Saturday night, it was the victim of what at first seemed like internal sabotage.

People who tried to download the bingo cards from SVT’s website were met by the message: “At the moment it is impossible to print out the boards because of SVT’s somewhat strange ‘individual’ salary system.”

According to the program’s project manager Tora Heckscher, the reason was a joke, not a protest. She tells the newspaper “Sydsvenska Dagbladet” someone had changed the text for the error message when the server is overloaded.

The program has been criticised by the unions at SVT in Malmö. Officially Bingo Royal is a Malmö production, and is thus counted as part of the 55 percent of all SVT  production which must be produced outside Stockholm. But SVT in Malmö has commissioned the production company Nordisk Film in Stockholm to actually make the programs, and it is broadcast from a venue in Stockholm.
