Talking, as we were, about emerging themes from recent BBC Executive Minutes, September saw the arrival of new non-executive director Dharmash Mistry, who, I'm guessing, is the first BAME member of that Board.

Perhaps building on that, the lunchtime learning session was about reaching out to UK communities. I suspect that venture capitalist Dharmash found the rest of the day pretty hard pounding. He missed the June discussion on drama - which could have been enlivened with his board experience at LoveFilm, now Amazon Prime.

But from his tweets, he may yet bring a spark of life to Auntie. He's recently shared this Google presentation, which explains how success comes from hiring the best people and, largely, giving them their head. Almost like the BBC of the 60s and 70s....
