The multimillionaire businessman, Greg Dyke, has accrued
substantial media stocks over the years. Having previously agreed with
the BBC hierarchy to sell his shares in Granada by April this year (when
he was due to take over) the incoming director-general of the BBC has
faced enormous pressure to take immediate action following a Sunday
newspaper ’expose’. The BBC has known about Dyke’s Granada shares for
months. Funny thing is, apart from a flu scare, there hasn’t been much
to fill the headlines. A storm in a teacup, clearly.
