THOMPSON DG: BBC’S BOON IS CHANNEL 4’s HEADACHE

Commenting on the appointment of Mark Thompson as new BBC Director General, Don said:

“I welcome this appointment.

“Mark Thompson must now engage with the charter review process so that the BBC of the future is free to operate without excessive political interference and is not slave to commercial pressures and the ratings war.

Main Image“Mark Thompson has the zeal to ensure the BBC continues to be the standard bearer of public service broadcasting.

“With Channel 4’s finest having formed a powerful team at the BBC, it is essential that Channel 4 continue to recruit excellence at an incredibly sensitive time for its financial future.

“The new chief executive at Channel 4 must quickly dismiss the tired calls for privatisation and create a not-for-profit model for the channel’s future.”
