Top table plan
Ruth Gledhill, formerly of The Times, has extracted some clarification from the BBC about James Purnell and 'Religion and Ethics', for the website Christian Today...
A BBC spokesman told Christian Today that Purnell will not be "head of religion" but will represent religion at the top table at the BBC. Until now there has been no one on the executive board who has been specifically responsible for religion. He will not be involved in day-to-day commissioning but will oversee the corporation's religious "strategy", the spokesman said.
