Series: City Speed Debates
The way the BBC is run and regulated has become one of the main issues in the run-up to BBC Charter Renewal. The report by the DCMS Select Committee, the speech by the Chairman of the BBC Trust, Rona Fairhead, on its future and the controversy about her non-executive role at HSBC have focused attention on governance and regulation at Britain’s biggest public broadcaster.
The CLJJ has assembled an expert line-up for a half-day seminar, the third in the series of what have become known as ‘speed-debates’ on the future of the BBC.
- Sir Michael Lyons, former Chairman of the BBC Trust
- Sir Christopher Bland, former Chairman of the BBC Governors and of BT
- Diane Coyle, Vice-Chairman, BBC Trust
- David Elstein, former CEO of Channel Five
- Steve Hewlett, presenter of Radio 4’s Media Show and Guardian columnist
- Jacquie Hughes, Brunel University, author of the Centre Forum report ‘Broadcasting by Consent’
- Lord Inglewood, formerly a Broadcasting Minister and Chairman of the Lords Communications Comittee
- Professor Jean Seaton, Westminster University, author of Pinkoes and Traitors: The BBC and the nation, 1974-1987
- Professor Richard Tait, Cardiff University and former BBC Governor and Trustee
Registration will start at 9:30 and the first session will begin at 10:00. The seminar will end at 13:00 and a buffet lunch will be served afterwards.
