The BBC Trust issued a statement today outling decisions made at its meeting of the 16th July, following up its review of bbc.co.uk. At this meeting, the Trust approved the BBC Executive's proposals for a new system of management controls. Quote

The new system includes the appointment of a Group Controller, bbc.co.uk, with overall accountability and responsibility for the service licence. This will include accounting for the overall performance of the service, including its financial performance which is now subject to a new set of rigorous controls, shaping the development of its strategy and setting and monitoring compliance against clear criteria for distinctiveness and market impact.

There's been speculation recently that the BBC is working on a "IPTV" set top box. If you don't know what IPTV is, then BBCi Labs has blogged a quick guide. The iLabs blog has got off to a strong start with details of Flickr on TV work and their Two Streams quiz.

The Radio Labs blog tells us that iCal has been added to /programmes.

The BBC iPlayer service on Virgin Media recorded more than 10m viewings in June according to Media Guardian. There's a list of June's top ten iPlayer programmes here.

The BBC's webpage for Liverpool city of culture includes a mobile service, a Flickr group and a way to upload video..

Donald Kelly has mellowed in his views on the new iPlayer and says:

Feel free to submit your comments, I'm not expecting the flood of traffic I received via the link from the BBC Internet blog on my previous review (of which almost crashed my web-host.)

We'll do our best!
