The BBC has decided to re-announce the departure of Head of BBC Films, Christine Langan, first made public in July, but this time with added tributes from Lord Hall and Charlotte Moore.
Christine is to be CEO of Baby Cow Productions, 73% owned by BBC Worldwide. She responds to Tone and Charlotte's praise in kind: "Enlightened leaders like Tony and Charlotte have embraced the vital role that BBC Films plays in our creative life and I hope that audiences will long enjoy the rich array of varied projects nurtured by BBC Films.”
