Peter Fincham said “Being invited to deliver the MacTaggart is like being asked to be a guest on Desert Island Discs – you don’t turn it down. It’s an enormous honour, as well as an opportunity to reflect on the enormous challenges facing the broadcasting industry in the digital age. I’m looking forward to it with relish.”
