Done with Elan

Elan Closs Stephens, 69, has been re-invented as guardian of BBC interests in Wales, after the kerfuffle over Dr Carol Bell, selected and nominated for the job initially but turned down by the Welsh Minister Alun Davies.

Elan (Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle and English Literature and Language, Somerville College, Oxford - and the first woman President of Dafydd ap Gwilym Society Oxford University) was previously a member of the BBC Trust. Indeed she was such a trustie that she sat alongside Sir David Clementi as he selected the new bunch of non-executives for the unitary Board - including unfortunate Carol. At least Elan won't have to introduce herself to her new chums.
