Listen in pop-out player

Clive Coleman profiles the media modul James Murdoch, son of Rupert and a growing influence within News Corp.

But his biggest contribution to popular culture has been his development of the satellite broadcaster BSkyB, which now boasts a 40 per cent share of the UK television market.
