BBC under scrutiny by MPs – the work of the BBC – watch Tim Davie current Director General of the BBC

Members of the Digital Culture and Media and Sport Select Committee quizzed former DGs of the BBC as well as Tim Davie who is the current Director General.

They wanted to know more about the re-hiring of Martin Bashir in 2016.  A BBC inquiry found there was no evidence journalist Martin Bashir was rehired by the BBC to cover up the circumstances around his Diana interview, a BBC inquiry has found.

The Chair of the Committee, Julian Knight, said he is deeply concerned about the contents of the report.  Especially the decision to re-hire Mr Bashir when there were high level doubts about his integrity stretches incredulity to breaking point.

It was a long session.  Each member was questioned for more than hour.  The answers mainly said they couldn’t remember it was sucha long time ago!  The former DGs were not happy to be questioned publicly.  But there was no choice

Did they answer the questions?
