BBC Appoints New Editorial Director

From the Guardian: the BBC has appointed Roger Mosey as its editorial director, to oversee editorial issues across tv, radio, and news. The BBC has also appointed new directors of news, tv, and radio but has indicated that Mr. Mosey is not their immediate superior. The Mosey appointment is seen as an attempt by the BBC to address the various problems that have come to light at the corporation over the past few years, including the Jimmy Savile scandal, questions that arose over the filming of a documentary of the Queen, and fines levied by Ofcom after the BBC tv show "Blue Peter" engaged in deceptive practices with regard to a contest.
