Trevor Dann meets with media correspondent, Torin Douglas, who leaves the BBC later this month after nearly 24 years in the job. Torin has reported on the work of six BBC director generals, six BBC chairmen and a dozen cabinet ministers responsible for broadcasting and press issues. He covered the royal family's "annus horribilis" in 1992, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and the ongoing debate over press and privacy. He has reported on the birth of BSkyB and the growth of the Murdoch empire, the ITV licence auction and mergers, and more than one BBC crisis. In this exclusive interview, Torin shares his memories of where the BBC was, how it has changed and where it might be heading in the future. There is also the weekly round up of news from Radio Today's Managing Editor, Roy Martin which includes the Competition Commission results on its six-month investigation into the takeover of GMG. The Radio Today Programme with AudioBoo is available every Wednesday.
