This chapter focuses on the reorganisation of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). It suggests that the goal of General Adviser on War-Time Organisation was not to break the organization, but to produce a tidy and acceptable pattern which would save the BBC from incessant intervention from the Treasury Department. It explains that the reorganisation was designed to establish financial control and to reform the highly centralised pre-administrative machine built up in peace-time.
