Notes from history

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."
