New Chair for ACE

Sir Peter Bazalgette, the man who will forever be known for introducing Big Brother to British television, is to be the chairman of Arts Council England. Bazalgette was on Tuesday named as the successor to Dame Liz Forgan – one of the last decisions made by the outgoing culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, who was reshuffled to the Department of Health.

Bazalgette, a TV producer who was chairman and the creative driving force behind the company Endemol, had been widely tipped to take over. His credentials include being chairman of English National Opera, president of the Royal Television Society and a member of the advisory board of The Space, the joint Arts Council/BBC venture bringing free arts performances and films to the internet.
