One down

The BBC's latest dramatic "strategic re-organisation" sees the Television Board reduced from 25 to 24. Controller BBC2 and BBC4, Kim Shillinglaw has decided to leave the organisation, after an internal board selected Charlotte Moore to be the new Controller, TV Channels and iPlayer. Adam Barker becomes Acting Editor, BBC2. It looks as though BBC1, BBC2 and BBC4 will all have an Editor. Damian Kavanagh still seems to have the title Digital Controller BBC3.

A more radical restructure would have merged Charlotte's new role with that of Acting Director of Television Mark Linsey. There may still be time, but many will think the candidacy of Mark has been strengthened by this change.

There'll be increased twitchiness on other floors of Broadcasting House. BBC Radio still boasts Controllers for Radio 4, Radio 2 and 6Music, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Radio 5Live and 5Live Sports Extra and Radio 3.
