but I wouldn't be surprised to find that it's true. Many computer manufacturers offsource to India and other Asian countries.

Why do you say that?

India now leads the world in many aspects of software development and customer support. In fact a lot of major companies have departments based in India, and their customers don't even know it.

If I'm looking to outsource software development for websites Bangalore is the first place I go - they're streets ahead of anyone else when it comes to delivering on schedule.

Nothing on such a move on the BBC's Lancashire or Burnley Express web pages.

Without having seen the news story in question and not knowning who transmitted it I can not comment directly.

However, having talked to HR and other departments including the company spokesmen, they all gave me blank looks as no one has plans along these lines. And we would not mind seeing the programme as it does not appear to have been repeated on either local or national news.

Mav any chance you could tell what the programme was i.e GMTV etc and that way I can contact them for a copy of it.

Best regards
