Subject: RE: BBC TV Guitar Series
There was a huge change in the BBC in 1960 when Hugh Carleton-Greene became Director-General. He really did pull the organisation out its pre-war, classbound attitudes and a lot of the classy programming that went on from then on was down to his personality, energy and vision. He was, of course, detested by Mary Whitehouse - so he couldn't have been all bad.
