LONDON: BBC Chair Rona Fairhead Faces Lawsuit Over Channel Closure

Rona Fairhead- BBC

It seemed that maybe the saga of BBC Three was drawing to a close. Despite a spirited campaign headed up by programme-makers Jimmy Mulville and Jon Thoday, the supervisory BBC Trust decided in June to provisionally approve management plans to close the TV channel. But for once, it turns out, the BBC Trust might not be the final arbiters – even when they reach a concluded decision in the coming months.

Mulville and Thoday have been consulting their lawyers, and are now threatening legal action against the Trust. That would cause a major headache for its chairman, Rona Fairhead – especially during the period when she and director-general Tony Hall will be negotiating the very future of the BBC with the Government.
