  • "The BBC has appointed its first “head of content release” – a new addition to the scheduling team that will oversee how content is launched on iPlayer as well as on linear TV. Troy, who does not use a second name, has been promoted to the new role from the post of business manager, portfolio and multiplatform. He will report to head of scheduling George Dixon. In addition to releasing material on the iPlayer, Troy will be responsible for planning the way content is released to the BBC archive and for scheduling web content which does not feature on the iPlayer."
