Gone to black

There's a little more meat in the latest published minutes from the BBC Trust - nine pages !

We learn that a quartet of Rona Fairhead, Diane Coyle, Sonita Alleyne and Bill Matthews has 'volunteered' to handle the Trust's response to the Dame Janet Smith Review, looking at issues arising from the activities of Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall.

And there's an enticing piece of blacking out, for an item attended by no less than three lawyers from the Trust's chosen legal firm - Chicago-headquartered Baker & McKenzie.

One new piece of bureaucratic daftness - the Trust wants to create a single "service licence" for BBC News. Presumably, the thinking is that, as broadcast channels become less important, genre control is the way ahead for Great Portland Street.
