Ideologue ?

James Purnell's Charter offer of 'BBC Ideas' has its first manifestation - a Beta website with links to thirty or so "short films" for curious minds.

The production credits show how many bits of the BBC have set up kitchen-table operations in a bid to create videos that go viral - BBC World Service, BBC Woman's Hour, Newsnight, BBC Stories, BBC3, Tomorrow's World, Radio 4, BBC Archive.  Some date back to 2016. BBC Ideas has made some new ones - "Should we teach ethics to driverless cars ?" - and commissioned others, from Intelligence Squared, Angie Sharp Media, Dayglow & Pencil & Pepper and more.

There was an early morning tweet linking to "How to negotiate a pay rise", since deleted.
