From Deadline on March 11th, the seven contenders for the post of BBC Director General.
The seven, their school and university:
- Tim Davie: Independent boarding boy’s school and Cambridge University
- Charlotte Moore: Independent boarding girl’s school and Bristol University
- Jay Hunt: Independent girl’s day school and Cambridge University
- Alex Mahon: Independent girl’s day and Imperial College London
- Jane Turton: School unknown and St Andrews University
- Simon Pitts: School and university unknown
- George Osborne: Independent boy’s boarding school and Oxford University
So, at least 5 of the 7 attended gender-segregated private schools, often boarding. Jane and Simon, I’m going to guess, try to hide their privileged education. Once again, Simon may be hiding his elite alma mater but the other six all went to elite universities, 3 out of the 7, to Oxbridge.
All English, none BAME.
