BBC Strategy Review - Alan Yentob addresses the VLV conference

"We will do our absolute best to fulfil our promise to put quality first."

This was the key message from Alan Yentob at yesterday's 27th annual VLV (Voice of the Listener and Viewer) conference

The morning event entitled 'Strictly Public Service Broadcasting - creative freedom and ambition?' focused on the BBC Strategy Review with keynote speeches from William Greswell, Controller of Strategy, BBC Vision and Alan Yentob, the BBC's Creative Director.

William began by setting out the strategy review and talking through five main themes: put quality first, do fewer things better, guarantee access to all, make the licence fee work harder and set new boundaries. He set the scene for Alan to talk about how the BBC will achieve these aims by focusing on delivering quality content. You can read Alan's speech in full here.

As soon as he came off the stage I asked Alan to summarise the key points from his speech, you can watch the video below.

Make sure you have your say on the points laid out in the strategy review on the BBC Trust's consultation site. The consultation period ends on 25th May.
