BBC director general Tim Davie pushed on Martin Bashir’s rehiring

The BBC’s director general, Tim Davie, has told the Today programme that an investigation will be published next week into why journalist Martin Bashir was rehired in 2016.

Bashir became the religion correspondent in late 2016, when questions had already been asked about his conduct surrounding the Princess Diana Panorama interview. He was later promoted to religion editor.
