WHO'S THE BOSS?
The inquisition of BBC director general Mark Thompson by MPs from parliament's public accounts committee last week didn't stop at the corporation's ousting of Broadcasting House architect MacCormac Jamieson Pritchard. As part of the questioning, Thompson and two of his governors were asked to name the BBC's chairman in 2001. After much deliberation, the beeb bosses, rather amazingly, failed to stretch their memories back four years. 'We'll have to get back to you, ' they said, putting a surprising amount of faith in their organisational prowess.
