Greg Dyke in conversation

Greg Dyke talks about his life in the media and his new memoir Inside Story.

Greg Dyke, controversial former BBC Director-General, takes to the stage to talk about his life in the media, his new memoir Inside Story (published 20 September) and the events that led up to the major conflict between the Government and the BBC, following the Hutton Inquiry. This is the first opportunity for members of the public to put their questions to this influential figure.

Greg Dyke was Director General of the BBC from January 2000 until his high profile resignation on January 28 this year. His ebullient leadership style and commitment to improving programmes and increasing the cultural diversity of the corporation's work force, vastly improved staff morale. When he made his public announcement 1,000 employees at the White City headquarters walked out in protest at the resignation and the handling of the affair.

The event is chaired by journalist and presenter, Jon Snow - the face of Channel 4 News since 1989. Jon Snow will interview Greg Dyke live on stage. His range of international interviewees extends from Nelson Mandela to Arundhati Roy, Tony Blair to Monica Lewinsky.
