David Dimbleby: 'No-one at the BBC has the slightest clue what anyone else is doing'

Veteran BBC journalist David Dimbleby has taken a swipe at the corporation’s director general Mark Thompson whilst speaking at the Charleston Arts festival in East Sussex, the Daily Mail reports.

He said:

We have this great cry in the BBC under our revered leader [director general Mark Thompson], which is “one BBC”, but in truth nobody ever has the slightest clue what anybody else is doing.

‘We discovered, after we’d been working on Seven Ages Of Britain for a year, that Neil MacGregor was doing those 100 objects and it was a complete surprise.’

He was referring to Radio 4’s History of the World in 100 objects.
