Interview bombing

The 'Meet the Controllers' sessions at the Edinburgh TV Festival have occasionally proved quite probing interviews. The BBC's Director of Content, Charlotte Moore, has been slowly changing the rules - this time being joined on stage by commissioners Shane Allen, Alison Kirkham, Piers Wenger and Kate Phillips. No interviewer has yet been listed - there may not be room for one.

New-at-C4 Ian Katz will be grilled solo by Robert Peston. Ben Frow at C5 faces Clive Anderson. BBC2 boss Patrick Holland and BBC4 chief Cassian Harrison get a joint session with Edith Bowman. Sarah Jane Mee of Sky will question Kevin Lygo, ITV and Paul Mortimer, ITV Digital.

There may be more sparks in a panel discussion, featuring Charlotte Moore, Ben Frow, and Zai Bennett of Sky. Kirsty Wark is in the chair, and the session is being produced by Kim Shillinglaw, an old oppo of Ms Moore, now perhaps earning more than her at Endemol Shine.
