Greg Dyke's tenure as Director General was cut short following the row with the government over a 'Today' programme report questioning the government's case for going to war in Iraq. In his time he launched the Freeview proposition, hastening the nation's transition from analogue to digital, and he injected a fresh style of management that engaged staff as no Director General had done before him.
