As colleagues suggested to me in advance, the idea of a BBC executive submitting to the Doughty St experience brings to mind phrases like "Christians, Lions and Ritual Sacrifice". A view reinforced by some of the advance comments on his blog when he asked for questions ("Father Tim said...Ggrrrrrrr, I fecking hate the BBC. I must destroy them. Gnash. Gnash.") Iain was, of course, thoroughly professional, courteous, quietly probing and an all round decent bloke.
Does this mean that Robin Aitken's claims of bias at the Beeb will be given some air-time soon?
