Critics have claimed that a relatively low number of cases relating to alcohol dependence and substance abuse showed that BBC management were “ignorant" in recognising an alleged "cocaine culture" within the corporation.

The figures, disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act, show that 87 cases – were logged in the "behaviour/conduct" category, compared to 42 for absence, 12 for bullying and harassment, 22 for conflicts of interest and eight for poor timekeeping.

But there were only nine cases in the alcohol dependence/substance abuse - a number, a former producer dismissed as “too low” to represent the true picture.

Sarah Graham, a former BBC producer of children’s programmes told the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee last year that she had been offered cocaine on her first day at work at the corporation.

She said yesterday: "I am not surprised by the low figures, because BBC management are not skilled in recognising any employees who may be suffering from drug abuse or dependency.

"There is a covert tolerance of cocaine abuse across the BBC and other media organisations. Because of the ignorance of cocaine abuse, a lot of the symptoms of cocaine abuse are regarded as 'creative genius'."

In her evidence to MPs last year Miss Graham proposed that BBC employees should face random drugs tests.

The figures are from April 2006 when the BBC first began to list disciplinary proceedings in a central database to February 2010.

They cover more than 17,000 BBC employees, but do not include staff of subsidiaries such BBC World, BBC Worldwide and the World Service Trust.

A BBC spokesman said: "The BBC makes clear the standards of behaviour expected of our employees. We take all allegations of misconduct seriously and where necessary will take disciplinary action.

"The .... database was set up to create a central record of disciplinary action. Before it was created information was held by departments locally. We never comment on individual disciplinary matters."
