Wiessler's business faltered following the BBC blacklisted him from duties.
"The BBC must act fast to reestablish trust and reassure the nation it is going to shine a light on some other regions falling short of their high standards we expect from it," composed Dowden. "The new leadership deserves credit for having put up an independent evaluation and accepting Lord Dyson's findings full and that I expect them to act quickly on all of his recommendations."

He returned to the BBC in 2016 as faith editor. But, Bashir also said that it had"no bearing at all on the private decision by Princess Diana to get involved in the interview"
