The Lord Hall of Birkenhead, CBE

DIRECTOR GENERAL BBC

Tony Hall, Lord Hall of Birkenhead, was approached directly by the BBC with the role of director general as he was regarded as the only man for the job. Hall began his career at the BBC around 40 years ago, progressing from the Belfast newsroom to director of news then head of current affairs. When he was not made director general in 1998, Hall became the chief executive of the Royal Opera House, a position he developed and dazzled in for twelve years. Having finally accepted his dream job at the head of the BBC, Hall is tasked with leading the broadcaster out of the crisis created by strikes and the Jimmy Saville scandal.
