Macron’s new minister of culture wants a French BBC

Françoise Nyssen resigned this week, dogged by tax accusations at her family-owned publishing house. It’s a shame. She invested heavily in music education.

Her successor Franck Riester has gone on record saying he wants to merge France Télévisions, Radio France and France Media Monde into a ‘BBC à la française.’


Immediately at risk are the radio orchestras. We hear nothing but alarm and despondency.

  • I hope whatever happens to the orchestras that someone there knows enough to correct a left-right reversed image of the result. That would NEVER happen at the BBC. Well, hardly ever.
