It comes as no surprise to me that Lord Hall of Birkenhead, is identified as leading the cover-up around Martin Bashir’s Panorama interview with Princess Diana.
In his years as Director General of the BBC not once did he face proper journalistic scrutiny about the various rows that would naturally befall the day-to-day life the state broadcaster.
He would is arrange for one-on-ones from helpful BBC reporters, have it filmed and edited and then offer them to BBC news and other medias. That way he would always control the narrative. No nasty questions.

The Bashir interview in 1995 was a sensation. Diana referred to three people in her marriage, her, Charles and Camilla. There had been nothing like it. The Royal family had never revealed their dirty linen in public.
Why had she done it? Other journalist on Panorama suspected foul play and demanded an inquiry. At the time the Head of news Tony Hall found there was no question of Bashir trying to mislead or do anything improper.”
It concluded their star reporter was an “honest man.”
Diana’s brother Earl Spencer is a determined man. He kept up his demands for an inquiry and finally the new DG (about 30 mins after Hall had stepped down) gave the go-ahead with Lord Dyson, a former Master of the Rolls, carrying it out.
And its a bombshell basically paving the way for massive compensation to be paid to BBC workers who lost their roles as a result of Bashir’s deceit.
It now appear that Bashir secured Diana’s co-operation by claiming that Palace officials were in the pay of journalists, that her phone was tapped, that Charles was in love with their son’s nanny and Edward had Aids. None of it was true.

What was particularly shocking is that a BBC graphics designer who was ordered by Bashir to produce the false bank statements showing Palace staff receiving money was fired and his career never recovered.
Now Hall is in the most serious of trouble. He will of course be fired himself. He took the job of being Chairman of the National gallery in Trafalgar Square. It’s the kind of job the DG would take.
He can’t possibly keep it. The BBC will have to pay out million because of his decisions and therefore the Establishment will give him the boot.
