TV production lines

It'll be twelve months of change in the top jobs of British tv when Peter Fincham exits ITV in March. 
Peter, 59 (Tonbridge and Churchill Cambridge) hasn't indicated his next move, but his chum Tim Hincks, 48 (The Weald School and Bristol University) is also leaving that month, from his role as President of the Endemol Shine Group. (Peter and Tim play with Google's Peter Barron in the band 'No Expectations'.)

Danny Cohen, just past his 42nd birthday, (City of London and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford) has been on the jobs market since announcing his departure from the BBC in October. Stuart Murphy, 44 (St Mary's Menston and Clare College, Cambridge) stood down from his role as Director of Entertainment Channels at Sky around the same time.

At least one job has been saved for the boys: Kevin Lygo, 58, (Cranbrook and Durham) has already been announced as Fincham's successor. And Julian Bellamy, 44 (Ashlynn's, Sussex and Cambridge) steps up into the Lygo vacancy. 

Quite a gene pool, huh ?
