Ex-DG: BBC ‘hobbled’ by policy makers

Mark Thompson, President/CEO New York Times, has suggested that the BBC, where he was Director General between 2004 and 2012, has suffered at the hands of British policy makers over the last decade or so, limiting its potential to bring British talent and British ideas to the world’s audiences, calling for a fundamental change in direction of government media policy to save the nation’s cultural sovereignty.
