Time for a Friday of reflection in the BBC Charter Renewal Bunker. Perhaps DG Lord Hall should remember his producer skills, and have a little coaching session with Strategy Director James Purnell, who got a little high-pitched on Newsnight, in the face of Stephen Glover from the Mail. It's possible that James is feeling the pressure - I thought he was on paternity leave - but Auntie can't let this debate become shouty, and there are better ways of handling shameless rogues in tv discussions.

The BBC has sent MPs a DVD for their summer recess delectation. It features an episode of the new Clangers; the award-winning play Marvellous; and a recent episode of Imagine, on American architect Frank Gehry. Yes, with Alan Yentob.
