Not that Michael Jackson

A few shivers running through management ranks at the BBC this morning, as The Guardian suggests that Lord Hall has approached Alan Yentob's mentee, Michael Jackson, to be Auntie's first Director of Content.

Happily, The Guardian says talks have stalled. Michael joined the BBC at Alan's behest to start The Late Show. He was, for a time, a lodger in Al's Notting Hill mansion, and one of his companies, set up with American wife Rachel Horovitz, used Al's address.

Michael is currently part of the team re-imagining Civilisation for Lord Hall, largely by adding an 'S'.
