Perhaps this post should have been titled ‘Stones and Glasshouses’.
A “staggering” number of staff members have contacted private consultants brought in by the BBC in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal. Their feedback has been shared with Dinah Rose, QC, the barrister brought in to investigate the internal culture of the BBC.
In an email to staff, the BBC’s director of human resources Lucy Adams told colleagues that some of the testimony is “uncomfortable to hear”.
One member of the BBC’s staff described the scale of the response as “staggering”. They told The Independent: “These are people with real stories and details of harassment and bullying who are living with the scars of an abusive management culture.”
I have absolutely no doubt the BBC will carry on chastising and berating other organisations for their failures whilst burying the bad news about their own.
Perhaps we should have a little competition….who can write the best ‘If the BBC were running the XXXX’ essay.
….running the Afghan War perhaps, or the Police…or the economy…..you would be forgiven for imagining the BBC already has an overly powerful control and influence over such things.
