I wish him well and hope it works, but why oh why wasn’t a ‘proper’ experienced, senior manager from industry selected or at least considered? It appears from your report that he was the only person approached! Is this man able to bang heads together and ensure that procedures are followed correctly and consistently? Going by reports of the BBC culture in the recent decades, hard nosed and tight management is what is required. Can he do it? We shall see in the fullness of time.
