White stuff

BBC News hacks will be delighted to know that Director and Presenter James Harding will be taking thinking time on job cuts this week whilst contemplating the pistes of Davos.

He'll have the small distraction of a major interview to conduct in front of the delegates. China ? The World Economy ? Refugees ? No, a session quizzing Kevin Spacey.

Presumably trained BBC interviewers also in Davos, such as Lyse Doucet, Tanya Beckett and Nik Gowing, aren't glitzy enough for the gig. Still, James can also catch up with old school-chum George Osborne, and his broadcasting "Mrs", Zanny Minton-Beddoes, And rub shoulders with thought-leaders like Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono and Gordon Brown. Maybe they've got ideas on newsroom shift patterns.
