The former BBC Editorial Director reveals behind the scenes of the Savile crisis, and why he never wanted the top job
Roger Mosey is Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge; and former BBC Editorial Director. Roger spent over 30 years at the beeb, and held some of its biggest jobs: Director of Sport, Controller of Radio 5 Live, Head of Television News, and leading the coverage of the 2012 Olympics. In this in-depth interview he reveals behind the scenes at the top of the world’s largest broadcaster, the maelstrom behind closed doors during the Savile crisis; why he never wanted to be Director General and the “relentless” nature of the job; and despite the pressure, why the Olympics was an opportunity he “couldn’t possibly turn down”.
