Mark Thompson at the BBC

Mark Thompson has hit the ground running as Director General of the BBC. Management jobs axed, a new role for Alan Yentob as "Creative Director" across all output and major reviews of various aspects of the Corporation's work.

BBC News gives a good, straight-down-the-line summary, while MediaGuardian (free registration required) is fairly comprehensive.

After Birt and Dyke it will be interesting how Thompson tries to impose his personality on the BBC. Perhaps the time has come for slightly less strident leadership...
