Alan Yentob’s ‘Imagine’ or ‘Take this man off the telly’

Comments & Replies

This article was published as ‘Take this man off the telly’ on 2 July 2003. It put an immediate end to my never more than fading career as an occasional television presenter. I think it raises necessary questions about the exercise of corporate power in the BBC.

One day in June 2003, the arts editor of the Guardian asked me to review the first three films in BBC1’s new arts strand ‘Imagine’. I watched them in dismay and wrote this piece. It was published on 2 July 2003. For the BBC’s┬áreaction see ‘Who are you…’ under ‘Conversations with Patrick Wright’, pp. 26-8. Read article here┬╗
