In his speech last month outlining his view of the BBC's future, Director General Tony Hall said:
"At the moment we treat audiences like licence fee payers. We should be treating them like owners. That’s what I meant when I said that we wouldn’t be THE BBC, but My BBC, Our BBC? The public owns us and that is what it needs to feel like."
Which seems like a good cue for another in our occasional series of open posts.
As always in an open post, the ground rules are:
1. Comments need to abide by the BBC’s House Rules. Keep the conversation civil please
2. If you want to make a specific complaint about the BBC use the Complaints website
3. This open post is about the work of BBC Online – if you want to have a general discussion about the BBC, try the Points of View message board. Information about the BBC can also be found on the About The BBC blog and the BBC News Editors blog.
I can’t promise to answer every question or comment but I’ll host and do my best.
The post will be open for comments for a month.
