BBC pays Getty for photo of own building

Whilst sending a tea boy out to take a snap doesn’t sound particularly right (do tea boys exist?) it does show how the large libraries have successfully setup the mindset of picture buyers.

Of course its not quite as simple as this, the BBC could well have a fixed deal where they pay a set fee to Getty and so sending someone outside would just add to costs, are you old enough to remember when things were a bit more simple?
