Page 55 of the BBC Annual Report and Accounts 2016/17 contains a table showing how many people the BBC employs in different parts of the UK. I have summarised the results for London and Scotland below.

Location% of UK Population% of UK PSB Staff (equivalent full time)
London13.3%47%
Scotland8.3%7%

London’s population is only 60% greater that Scotland’s but the BBC employs 570% more Londoners that Scots.

Also remember that most, if not all, of these London employees will be paid the London weighting subsidy which comes out of the BBC tax.
