The BBC has apologised to audiences after TV and radio schedules were hit by a journalists' strike today:
Programmes including the flagship Today on Radio 4 and BBC One's Breakfast did not air as scheduled this morning.
BBC staff at Salford Quays are on the picket lines along with thousands of employees across the country.
Some programmes will be disrupted during the 24-hour strike over job cuts.
Around 2,000 posts are set to go under cost-saving plans.
