    It's been a big day at the BBC - this morning Director General Mark Thompson confirmed last week's leak to The Times and announced the recommendations of his strategic review of the Corporation's activities. The World at One with Martha Kearney gave nearly 13 minutes to the story this lunchtime. Here's the item in full. The review doesn't signal any change at Radio 4: the BBC's document says:

    This strategy strongly endorses the current creative direction and editorial performance of Radio 4, Radio 3, Radio 1 and 5 Live. Radio 4, the original Home Service of the BBC, is unique in world radio in its quality and range...

    But the proposed changes - which now enter a period of consultation conducted by the BBC Trust - will clearly, if accepted, change the shape of the Corporation substantially.
