Neil McIntosh's ears may be burning today. The managing editor of BBC Online (Dunoon Grammar and Napier, Edinburgh) was on the judging panel for the 2015 Debrett's list of the 500 most influential people in the UK - and seems to have done well by Auntie.

Amongst suits we have Lord Hall, Danny Cohen, James Harding, Ralph Rivera and Charlotte Moore. Sadly no room for Alan Yentob and Helen Boaden. In music, we have Mark Cooper, head of music tv, and George Ergatoudis, who picks records for R1 and 1Xtra, plus Chris Evans, and (phew) Director of Music Bob Shennan. Other largely BBC talent includes Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Simon Mayo, plus head of sport Barbara Slater.

In news, we get John Humphrys, Mishal Husain, Nick Robinson, Robert Peston and Andrew Neil.
