   schema:reviewBody ""Ken Bloomfield served as Regional Governor for Northern Ireland, Head of the BBC Audit Committee, and Chair of the Northern Ireland Broadcasting Council from 1991-1999, one of the longest terms of appointment in that position. He brought considerable political and managerial experience to the Corporation in a period of uncertainty and change, presiding over a challenging period within Northern Ireland and also witnessing at least two revolutions within the BBC. He was the only Governor to serve on the Board through the entire period from John Birt's accession to the Director Generalship to the choice of Greg Dyke to succeed him. He offers critical judgements on the Birt and Dyke regimes, and on the Hutton Inquiry and events leading up to and following it. He closes his reflections by considering the implications of the recent replacement of Governors by a Trust, and examines the challenges facing the Corporation today."--Jacket." ;
