Meetinged out

What does/did Danny do all day ?  An FOI enquiry asked for details of the outgoing Director of Television Danny Cohen's diary from 1st to 15th July. The BBC said you can't see some of it, cos it's to do with 'journalism, art or literature'. But they did provide other bits...and you can see two things. One, there's been no real Bonfire of the Boards, or slashing of the meeting/routine command and control culture that stifles the BBC. Two, why Danny, in his forties, might have decided enough's enough...

Danny Cohen is the Director of Television, a content division, with the majority of his appointments being programme or strategic discussions about aspects of our output. This information is out of scope under FOI legislation. However as a member of the BBC Executive team and an industry figure we can provide information about those appointments that concern pan-BBC or industry-wide business and that fall within the scope of the Act.
