Former BBC Director of News, Radio and England, Helen Boaden was guest of the Media Society at the Groucho Club in London last night, lightly grilled by Jane Garvey.

The event was entitled "Goodbye to all that", the title of Robert Graves bitter-sweet autobiography, regret the changing of old orders. From tweets, we gather Helen thought the BBC Trust, led by Lord Patten, should have chosen Caroline Thomson as Director General in succession to Mark Thompson, rather than George Entwistle. And that she'd been offered $4 p.a. to join CNN.  More, and I expect there was more good stuff, as we get it...
