The BBC and Princess Diana

The Culture Secretary has condemned the initial unacceptable conduct, and the subsequent failure to properly investigate and put matters right, confirmed by the findings of Lord Dyson’s investigation into how the BBC secured an interview with Princess Diana.

  • Lord Dyson’s report reveals damning failings.
  • The government must now reflect on Lord Dyson’s thorough report and consider whether further governance reforms at the BBC are needed in the mid-term Charter Review. 
  • I am sure that almost everyone will welcome the fact that the new leadership launched this independent inquiry, but they must take firm action to ensure that this can never happen again.
