Series 2, Episode 4
It's all change on the corporate merry-go-round. In his new role as Senior Executive, Primetime Factuality, consistently lucky David Wilkes needs to flesh out the programme idea behind One Big Family. Not having any ideas himself he turns for inspiration to Izzy Gould in her new role as development producer.
On the verge of leaving the BBC, Lucy has been persuaded to take on a new job as Head of Inclusivity. One of her first jobs is to head up discussions on the Way Ahead Task Force around inclusivity targets - targets which become increasingly important to hit with Charter renewal just around the corner and an imminent meeting of the Cross Parliamentary Cultural Inclusion Action Watch Dog Group at Westminster.
Enter fearless Siobhan Sharpe whose idea of viralizing Muslim BBC Weather presenter Sadiq Iqbal looks like keeping the watchdogs happy. But Sadiq seems more interested in his colleague News Anchor Azia Zamani than in becoming a national icon.
As ever, it's down to Head of Values Ian Fletcher to try and steer the BBC ship through increasingly choppy waters.
