Letter to BBC Trustees:
Dear Lord Patten and the BBC Board of Trustees,
Please make sure that you safeguard the independence of the BBC when you select the next Director-General.
The BBC’s global reputation rests on its independence - please don’t do anything which could put that in danger.
Over the next few days, the BBC Board of Trustees could be deciding who to appoint as the next BBC Director General. The BBC's reputation for independence has earned it respect all over the world. But now some outspoken politicians have suggested the job should go to a candidate who is party political.
If enough of us add our names to an open letter to the Trustees, we can remind them that the BBC should be protected from party political game playing. Add your name to the open letter to the BBC Trustees, telling them to defend the BBC's independence.
