Immediate Media have announced the, er, immediate closure of BBC Knowledge magazine.

At the foot of the magazine’s website you’ll find this bit of corporate bollocks:

The licence to publish BBC Knowledge Magazine was acquired from BBC Worldwide by Immediate Media Company on 1 November 2011. We remain committed to publishing a magazine and website of the highest editorial quality [my emphasis]

You wonder just how committed they were to a “website of the highest … quality” when they hadn’t updated their blog since March and their “latest updates” were posted in April.
