Sir Peter Bazalgette has had a long and productive career in the arts. He is currently non-executive chairman of ITV, where we meet for a wide-ranging conversation. He has been Chairman of English National Opera and Chair of Arts Council England (2012 until 2016). He is Chair of the the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction, and author of The Empathy Instinct: How to Create a More Civil Society (2017).
We talk about the future of the BBC (he is one of the most influential men in broadcasting), arts funding and sponsorship in an age of moral purity, making a case for the arts to government, repatriation of artefacts, the role of art post Brexit, and art in age of the internet.
