Regarding cross-commissioning and promotion between BBC Radio and TV, history is repeating itself to an extent.

In the 1990s, there was the Top Of The Pops radio show on Radio 1 on a Sunday afternoon. BBC Choice had a short-lived series, Radio 1 TV.

There does seem to be a little more co-operation between different news programmes. I've heard Newsnight's political editor Nicholas Watt file reports for the Today programme, for example.

One of the changes in radio is to not have programme specific correspondents and reporters but pool them and the stories they come up with.

The Express has this article claiming that the BBC is considering a two-tier service:

Pay for Tier 2 and you don't have to suffer Oneness.

This could well be mischief making by Government "sources" but Charles Moore is in the running for BBC Chairman according to the Mail on Sunday.

The power to appoint the Chairman (and DG?) really needs to be stripped from the government to ensure the BBC's survival as an independent state broadcaster.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

I’m not sure what benefit attaching a story from the Daily Mail is really, except to get people worked up, there are other places to get annoyed by extreme ideas that probably won’t happen
