LISTEN: John Major’s Tribute to Jim Naughtie

After 21 years, this morning was Jim Naughtie’s last time presenting the Today programme. John Major paid tribute:

“I’ll miss you. Generally, you’ve asked the right questions, and mostly, you’ve listened to the answers.”

This will always be Guido’s favourite moment:

Goodbye…

Tonight’s episode will be from Bath. Guido’s sure Quentin and Mary will get on like an Anglo-Saxon hut on fire…

Newsnight Ratings Blow as 10 O’Clock News Extended

The BBC have confirmed that that they will extend the 10 o’clock news bulletin by ten minutes in 2016. Media Guardian reports:

“The move to end the main bulletin at 10.45pm, first reported by the Guardian last week and expected to be announced officially later today, will increase the overlap with Newsnight, BBC2’s current affairs programme, which starts at 10.30pm.”

Of course, MediaGuido readers knew all about the changes six weeks ago:

“There are concerns that plans from Beeb bosses to let the News at Ten run on until 10:45pm would further eat into Newsnight’s ratings, dire news given the first ten minutes of the programme are already killed by the local news on BBC1.”

The move is killer for the already embattled Newsnight, which has recently been trimmed by five minutes. The longer news bulletin on BBC1 is looking at spending more time on each story, and running in depth political interviews with Laura K. The fear is that renders Newsnight somewhat obsolete…

Alan Yentob Quits

Alan-Yentob-001

Yentob’s statement in full:

“The BBC is going through particularly challenging times and I have come to believe that the speculation about Kids Company and the media coverage revolving around my role is proving a serious distraction.

“So I have spoken to Tony Hall and told him that I think it best that I step down from my senior management role as Creative Director at the end of this year and focus on programme making and TV production – including of course the Imagine Series. I will also continue supporting Christine Langan and her team as Chairman of BBC Films.

“I love the BBC and will continue to do everything I can to ensure that it thrives and fulfills the great expectations we all have of it.”

At last!

ITV’s Allegra Stratton

As rumoured last week, Newsnight’s Allegra Stratton is off to ITV:

“BBC Newsnight’s Political Editor Allegra Stratton is to join ITV News’ line-up of specialist experts in the newly-created role of National Editor.

Allegra will work across ITV News’ full range of programmes, appearing frequently on News at Ten. In her new role, she will provide insight and in-depth analysis of the domestic and policy issues that matter to our viewers.”

Stratton is not thought to have got on brilliantly with Ian Katz. Wounder for the BBC as ITV News at Ten bolster their line up further. Newsnight looks like a sinking ship
