Will the Nick Pollard report make any difference to the BBC?.

Seeing the BBC Newsnight program yesterday evening and hearing what as been stated in the Nick Pollard report, I wonder if it will make much difference. Because it would seem that some of the people involved are choosing their own ways forward, instead of being told.

There even a media report today, that the BBC are taking possible further expensive legal advice about regaining returns on previous pay-outs, because those in power now regard the payments and conditions were excessive, and not to the public's advantage or taste. Yet at the same time, they are already saying that any returns would be very unlikely and uncertain?.

The position of senior staff who have been named or were suggested, was also highlighted in yesterday's Newsnight program. And it would seem that there are changes pending, and the people involved will have lesser responsibilities , but reap the same previous rewards. one particulat comment was how someone can resign (before being pushed), yet still remain in the same job for a further six months?.

In answer to the original question, you bet it will!

The BBC has been stung by this episode and lost a Director General in the process.

The first task of the new man will be to overhaul the management structure and ensure there is a simplified chain of command with clear accountabilities.
