The BBC has announced organisational changes to enable implementation of its Creative Future content strategy launched last April.
One of the main changes is the creation of BBC Vision.
BBC Television, Factual & Learning and Drama, Entertainment & Children's come together in a new group, BBC Vision, led by Jana Bennett.There's plenty more where that came from and, if you like this kind of thing, you can read Director General Mark Thompson's speech to staff (free registration required).
This group will be responsible for in-house multi-media production, commissioning and audio visual services, including the TV channel portfolio, and digital services like High Definition and Interactive.
Multi-media, 360 degree production, under a single Production Head, will be more closely aligned to – while still physically separate from – the 360 degree commissioning teams.
Commissioning will be grouped under four controllers of: Fiction (drama, comedy, BBC Film and programme acquisitions), Entertainment, Knowledge (including all factual and Learning) and Children's.
