Before it kicked off
Replays of the Royal Television Society spat between James Purnell, BBC Director of Strategy and Education, 46 and Jay Hunt, C4's Chief Creative Officer, 49, suggests Little Jimmy was more on the front foot than fast-talking combative Jay - and the fight crowd sounded more on Jay's side.

Does this matter ?  Well, it comes in a week when Roger Mosey, former BBC Editorial Director, suggested James Purnell was being prepared long-term as a candidate for DG. And sadly, James waved his cv too early and wildly at Jay, noting he had been a Culture Secretary and created Ofcom. Playground stuff, and James did himself no favours in the broadcasting community.
