Entwistle Appointed Director, BBC Vision

The BBC has announced the appointment of George Entwistle as Director, BBC Vision.
The appointment concludes as extensive recruitment search that followed Jana Bennett's departure from the post in January 2011. Entwistle has also joined the BBC's Executive Board.
Commenting on the appointment, George Entwistle said: "I am genuinely honoured to have been chosen for the role of Director, BBC Vision. The BBC's television portfolio is of enormous importance to the creative and cultural life of the UK and is performing strongly in terms of quality and audience reach and share. At the heart of its success, BBC Vision Productions is responsible for some of the best television programmes we broadcast.
"I feel enormously proud to be leading these teams and I will do my utmost to build on the legacy of talent and excellence left by my predecessor, Jana Bennett."
BBC Director General Mark Thompson said: "I am delighted to be able to confirm George as the BBC's new Director, Vision. The breadth of his experience across journalism, the arts and factual programmes, combined with his rock-solid editorial judgement and deep understanding of the BBC's values, equip him brilliantly for this formidable task.
"I am looking forward to working closely with him to ensure the BBC's television portfolio remains the envy of the broadcasting world."
