What does the future of the BBC look like in this new decade?
As the BBC’s Director General, Lord Tony Hall, announces his departure in the Summer, we discuss the challenges facing the BBC and whoever takes over in the role.
A mid-term review in 2022 and a new charter in 2027 will be preceded by a consultation on decriminalising non-payment of the licence fee. Issues facing the organisation are numerous. From equal pay and licence fees for the over 75s to diminishing younger audiences and its very funding model. The BBC and the next Director General will need to decide what type of organisation Auntie wants or needs to be. There will plenty in the next DG’s In Tray.
Join Roger Bolton and a distinguished panel to discuss, debate and digest the challenges facing the BBC and give their notes for the next Director General.
