There's something rather sweet about tweets promoting the current series of talks by Sir Peter Lytton Bazalgette on Radio 4. They're about empathy, also the title of Sir Pete's forthcoming book - admirable pre-publicity for the ITV Chairman, rarely afforded on the network.
Tweets have come from James Purnell, BBC Director of Radio and Education, and Alan Davey, Controller of Radio 3. Alan was a senior civil servant, said to have peaked at the DCMS, when James Purnell arrived for his year as Culture Secretary. Al soon become CEO of the Arts Council, England - Sir Peter arrived there as Chairman in 2012. Two years later, with James installed at the BBC, Al followed him to Radio 3.
Empathetic ou quoi ?
