Second, everyone would be able to access the BBC in private. Your tastes, your culture, your enthusiasms, your politics — all of these could be developed without the eye of anyone upon you.
If you closed the door, no one, not the busybodies down the road, nor the religious authorities, nor the government could track what you were listening to. Third, Reith was convinced that broadcasting, with this peculiar capability of reaching everyone, should also provide for everyone. Using the privilege brought by the income from the licence fee, it should serve the thinly scattered few as well as the many. In the s, the BBC had no past, only a future. It had plenty of difficulties to negotiate — then as now, a hostile and protective press, a government to convince of its ideas, enormous practical and technical hurdles.
But compared with the present time, when the BBC is both beloved institution and political and cultural battle ground, an organisation whose its every movement minutely examined and raked over, it was free: a start-up with an inventive young team, idealistic and experimental. Broadcasting today, despite its appeal to the public imagination, is really only in the position of the prehistoric fisherman who put out a few hundred yards from shore in his frail coracle or dug-out … We may be certain, therefore, that the work of the past few years … is but shallow-water fishing in relation to ocean navigation.
There is a quality of inventiveness, ingenuity and resourcefulness that has run through the BBC. That no engineer now sits on the executive board would have surprised Eckersley — for him the BBC was as importantly an engineering company as a broadcaster, and he and his successors had the institutional clout to match. He himself foresaw multichannel cable TV and air conditioning and double glazing in I see the interior of a living room.

The wide windows are formed from double panes of glass, fixed and immovable. John Birt had a similar moment of vatic clarity, albeit over a shorter timeframe, in a speech he gave in , shortly before departing as director general. They will want all programmes on demand at a time of their choosing. They will want services that focus on their personal passions, perspectives and needs. And they will want those services to be available on all media, wherever they are — at home; in the workplace; or on the move.
The last was the product, so BBC folk memory goes, of a drunken night out in after a digital worker got into trouble posting an inappropriate photograph of the model Katie Price on the BBC3 website. Requiring a redemptive idea to stave off disgrace, he and colleagues came up with the notion of a video-on-demand service for the channel. Four years and 86 internal meetings later, the iPlayer was born. What are the ideas that will sustain the BBC in the years to come?
Within the next 18 to 36 months, the BBC, as accessed through the web, will understand and reflect your innermost desires and delights, and will offer you more and more, across all its genres, based on your past preferences. Importantly, it will do this disinterestedly: it will not try to sell you other services, or pass on details of your private predilections to any third party.
The BBC — if you want it to — will also connect you to others who share those interests, according to Hall, and will try to build digital communities of viewers. The BBC is coming late to this kind of game. If you want to talk with others about The Great British Bake Off or the Archers, Twitter is already established as the place to do it, or live blogs. Indeed, earlier online communities — such as the Radio 3 and Archers message boards , whose users were often deeply critical of BBC policy — were closed down by the BBC, with specific suggestions from administrators that the discussion should migrate to Twitter and Facebook.
The BBC has traditionally been something of a fortress, a citadel; you have been either within it or outside. Hall is determined to change that. Instead of the portcullis being shut the BBC will, in the future, send its audiences out of the castle precincts and towards the work of other organisations whose values it shares. His recent appointments — Bob Shennan as head of music, Jonty Claypole as head of arts — are to cut through the BBC paralysis and tear down the walls of the citadel.
It remains to be seen whether they will succeed. Part of the idea behind the proposed migration of BBC3 online is to allow formats and programmes to loosen up and become more web-friendly: there may be chances, for example, for comics to test out short chunks of material to see whether they fly.
We have got to be the people who have enough confidence to be able to say that we are going to back things that may not work. Twenty years ago, it could be a fortress because the world of broadcasting in Britain was organised to accommodate it.
