Belated minutes from the BBC Trust's December meeting suggest that Lord Hall and Trustees Bill Matthews and Richard Ayre managed to keep quiet about a tv channel for Scotland for more than two months. Well done.
Less clear from the minutes is whose idea it was to restart a Serbian Service. "The Deputy Director, BBC World Service Group presented their analysis
of the case for re-establishing the BBC’s Serbian service. This followed
discussions with the Foreign Office which was interested in offering
additional funding for such a service." Pretty muddy.
And then, in a meeting at which The Trustees approve the closure of the Radio 1 Newsbeat website and app, "The Director-General said the way in which the BBC serves younger
audiences was one of the biggest strategic issues facing the Corporation."
