Yentoub accused

Arts projects to mark the refurbishment of Broadcasting House are costing the licence fee payer dear according to the Sunday Times this morning.

The paper reports that Alan Yentob, the corporation’s creative director,is behind a flurry of extravagant spending projects costing £3.9m, including

£25,000 to send a remote-controlled model helicopter equipped with a camera flying over Broadcasting House for just two minutes

a photographer who was paid £70,000 to take pictures of those involved in refurbishing the building and three artists who received £24,000 between them to design “wraps” to hide the project’s scaffolding.
