Jeff,on his experience at the beeb rather dismisses its management
"it is an institution with a thick layer of egregiously poor management. For every journalist foot-soldier, gamely filing reports from war zones, there is, back at HQ, a battalion of worse-than-useless, middle-ranking meddlers with only one aim: to survive long enough to draw a pension."
Describing many of them as "failed broadcasters"
In a commercial organisation they would be driven out but at the BBC
Instead of the boil being lanced, the poison stays in the system. And so a drama is turned into a crisis, made worse by an unusual capacity for self-flagellation.
Strong words Jeff
