Liliane Landor Steps Down As Head Of Languages At BBC World Service | TV News
The BBC has truly lost one of its best. The Corporation has lost one of its strongest voices for women and ethnic minorities with the stepping down of Liliane Landor as head of languages of the World Service. The departure was mutually agreed by both parties, but there are understood to have been differences with the senior management over the future direction of the service.
The BBC commented on the departure, “Liliane Landor has been a defining figure in shaping the World Service over the course of her 26 years at the BBC. At Liliane’s behest, the language services transformed the BBC’s ability to make sense of the world, bringing its expertise, first-hand knowledge and courageous on-the-ground reporting to all parts of the BBC’s global coverage”.
