Greg Dyke by John Keane

Greg Dyke 1947 -

Director-General 2000-2004

By John Keane

Greg Dyke’s tenure as director general was cut short following the row with the government over a Today programme report questioning the government’s case for going to war in Iraq. In his time he launched the Freeview proposition, hastening the nation’s transition from analogue to digital, and he injected a fresh style of management that engaged staff as no director general had done before him.
