Let joy be unconfined

The BBC is going through a remarkable period, however brief, if James Purnell is to be believed. In a weekend interview he was asked if he wanted to be Director General.

“I love the BBC and when it comes to it, I want the best person to run it. There genuinely is no vacancy and I get no sense from Tony [Hall, the current DG] that he’s going anywhere. And you’ve got a team of people who really like each other, trust each other and work well together."

“Is it something I’m looking for? No."

I've never known a period of such harmony. Truly remarkable.
