Perusing the BBC financial statements for 2006, as is my want I was struck by how family orientated the business is. That's so nice to see.
For example Baroness Deech, a Governor? Well..... her daughter is a journalist with BBC News.
Merfyn Jones, a Governor? Well..... his son is employed as a researcher with BBC News.
Ranjit Sondhi, a Governor?Well.... his wife is employed as Head of Political Community Affairs, whatever that is.
Richard Tait, a Governor? Well.....his wife is a commissioning editor with Radio 4.
Mena Richards, controller of BBC Wales? She is very family orientated, doing the double with payments to her sister's company Torpedo totalling £325, 000 for programmes and £56,000 to her husband for artistic rights.
Now I don't want to come across like Private Eye here. There ain't no law against members of a family working for the same company. I just find it interesting how the media blood obviously courses through the veins in some. Could be something in the water?
