Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor

George Entwistle resigned tonight from the top post in the BBC, Mr Entwistle took up the post of Director General on 17 September, and his sudden resignation makes him the shortest-ever serving BBC Director General.

In my opinion he was a decent chap in the wrong job, you don’t have to meet the man to make a thumbnail sketch that he was ported into a position that he was uncomfortable with.

The BBC needs someone who will kick ass, someone who will make substantial changes that will make the organisation less cliquey and more responsible to the tax payers.

You can’t even interview someone from the BBC to talk about camera technology without passing it over two committees first, that’s how paranoid they have become.

Someone like Lord Alan Sugar would be the very man for the job, he can see through people in seconds and stands no-nonsense.

No matter who was at the top of the BBC tree over the last few weeks they would have resigned due to the Jimmy Saville scandel and laterly the very poor decision that led to name an innocent man as a child abuser.

The BBC are in turmoil because of a few bad decisions and I personally think the people responsible for those decisions should also follow Mr Entwhistle…out the door !



Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. While this article is off-topic for this forum, I could not agree more with your opinions.
    I really do hope the BBC puts its house in order so that it regains its global status of respect and independence.

  2. HD Warrior covers, News, Views and Comment. The BBC employes a lot of my readership both inside and out so I think this is very ON TOPIC.
