The BBC has a new Director General while its former star presenter is launching a rival news channel. What will this do to the media landscape and how should established players respond?

Alastair also talks about his belief in the value of impartiality; where ITV went wrong in the digital arms race; why he can’t stand opinionated journalists; what real diversity looks like; and why the advice he gives young reporters hasn’t changed in 40 years.
