Our latest event from the ‘in just 60 minutes’ series featured guest speaker Greg Dyke discussing ‘Our failing democracy – will the coalition last long enough to save it?’ The video above includes footage from this successful event.
In his four years as Director-General of the BBC, Greg Dyke started four new digital television channels, five new digital radio channels, opened two new BBC regions, launched the BBC’s interactive television services and helped create Freeview. Greg reversed the trend at the BBC, which took employees away from making programmes and made them into managers. In doing so he reduced administration costs dramatically from 24% of total income to 15%. In 2005 he became chairman of HIT and in 2006 he became chairman of Brentford Football Club.
