James Purnell


Last quote by James Purnell

The idea came from ... another group of young BBC employees who pointed out that in our content-making areas the percentage of senior leaders under 30 is particularly low. In 2016/17 it was only 0.1 per cent, which maybe doesn't sound unusual until you think that the founders of Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple were all 30 or under.feedback

The theory, which I think is right, is that you can get that evidence in other ways, so you can get it through demonstrating competency in other ways. We don't have targets for socioeconomic but we are thinking about it. The hard question is what is good. We know what our data is, we don't know how it compares to other people. Until we have data across the industry I think it's quite hard to know what good is. We would love to have a target, we would be very happy to do that, it's just what it would be.”.

Jul 16 2017 - Netflix

It feels existential, really. The Crown is the only major programme Netflix or Amazon has made about the UK. I just think it will be a pivotal moment if we don't change what we do. We do typically pay less than the market but we pay enough to get great content. We are not the civil service. If you start treating the BBC as though it were the civil service it wouldn't be the BBC any more. We want to get to a position that maybe [BBC staff] are paid less, but paid enough not to leave.feedback

If we don't update the rules, we're at serious risk of losing something very special about our British culture. This isn't about forcing people to watch public service programmes, or stopping anyone watching American shows we all love. It is about making sure you can find them easily. Some pay-TV platforms are already making 'free-to-air' services harder to find. On the new Sky box, Sky Q, there is no one button on the remote control that takes you to live TV. Instead, Home' takes you to Top Picks – a set of recommended programmes chosen by Sky.feedback

It's not just the BBC who's worried about this – ITV, Channel 4 and the House of Lords communications committee have all said it's time for change as well.feedback
