The BBC has appointed George Entwistle as director of its in-house production unit BBC Vision.
Entwistle had been acting director since the end of January when Jana Bennett moved to the corporation’s commercial arm BBC Worldwide to run its portfolio of international channels.
Entwistle, who will take up the post and also join the BBC’s Executive Board with immediate effect, 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.
As director of BBC Vision, Entwistle will be responsible for BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, BBC Four, BBC One HD, BBC HD and BBC Films. He will also oversee Vision Productions and have editorial oversight for pay TV group UKTV.
