After hearing BBC Director-General Lord Hall of Birkenhead's vision for the future of the BBC this morning, VLV Chairman Colin Browne said:
"We welcome the emphasis on the core principles of the BBC and using new technology to deliver high quality and diverse programmes to a range of audiences.
"The big challenge will be delivering these aspirations and how they are to be funded.
"It is vital that programme quality is not compromised."
Lord Hall will be the keynote speaker at VLV's Autumn Conference on Wednesday 27 November, when delegates will have the opportunity to ask him questions about his 'BBC of the future' vision.
