Does he leave the BBC in the best state to face the challenges of the new century or are his critics right to suggest that the BBC is no longer making the kinds of programmes the public wants?

Broadcaster". Special reports by the BBC's media correspondents will form part of a considered analysis of the Birt era. Producer Michael Blastland

historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.

50s, you can navigate by issue.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
