The Week: People News - Bennett leaves Worldwide

Jana Bennett, the highest-ranking woman at the BBC, has left her role as a non-executive director of BBC Worldwide, the corporation's commercial arm, because of potential "conflicts of interest". Bennett, the first director of BBC Vision, is responsible for all of the broadcaster's television output, which is taxpayer-funded. She is also on the board of BBC Worldwide, which last year made more than £1 billion and is Europe's largest TV exporter.
