The BBC's director-general, Greg Dyke, stepped in to stem a staff
revolt after he apologised for the controversial Question Time programme
aired last week in the wake of the terrorist attacks on the US. He sent
an all-staff e-mail giving his reasons for apologising for the programme
after intense criticism from the UK press. He had said the programme,
which showed a former US ambassador under attack from members of the
audience, was an "error of judgment". - The Times.
