BBC Creative Director Alan Yentob submitted himself to 12 minutes in the ring with Matt Frei on Channel 4 News tonight, and got quite upset. But he insisted there was no financial mismanagement at the charity which he chaired until its closure, Kids Company. This seems a little at odds with published internal memos, which show the charity had been unable to pay wages for July - though Matt Frei didn't manage to pick up that point.

And Mr Yentob claimed that Newsnight had been preparing its story this week on Kids Company without contacting the charity - and he simply rang up the production team to ask why. Presenter Emily Maitlis disputes this point.
