Speaking today at the ‘Future of the Licence Fee’ seminar at City University in London, Tony Hall, Director-General, outlined plans for the BBC to adopt a mantra of ‘compete or compare’ including raising the possibility of major changes to BBC in-house production.

He also announced a desire to extend competition where it works across the BBC, and where it is not appropriate, to make greater use of comparisons with the best practice in the market.
