9780099587262: Uncertain Vision: Birt, Dyke and the Reinvention of the BBC

Based on the most extensive independent research ever conducted inside the BBC, during which author Georgina Born was allowed unprecedented access to all ranks of the organization, Uncertain Vision concentrates on the corporation during the later 1990s, the last years of the regime of the former director-general John Birt. Blending reportage and cultural history, it offers both a panorama of the BBC's history and an intimate portrait of the people that make it up—producers, directors, editors, accountants, and managers.
