BBC plans to shift power to regions

From Katherine Rushton in Broadcast:
The BBC is to hand network commissioning power to the nations for the first time in what is being hailed as a "radical reshaping" of its structure.

Chief operating officer Caroline Thomson is planning to recruit at least five new commissioning executives across BBC Scotland, BBC Wales and BBC Northern Ireland. They will be responsible for ensuring that the amount of money the BBC spends on original content from the nations is proportional to the percentage of the UK population that lives there.
