Four years ago, along with many other bloggers, I criticised the BBC's coverage of the USA Presidential election result in general and the choice of David Dimbleby as anchorman in particular.
He is a public school boy of no great imagination or ability, projected on to the national stage by television fame and family connections.In that post I mentioned that he made his first film for the BBC at the age of 17. His younger brother Jonathan was in it too.
Here he is a few years later, down for the summer vacation from Oxford and the Bullingdon Club, reporting for the newly launched Anglia TV.
And if you wonder what I mean by "family connections", read about his father Richard Dimbleby - "widely acknowledged as one of the greatest figures in British broadcasting history".
But should the BBC still be relying upon the hereditary principle?
