BBC director general Tony Hall on building arts coverage

The BBC is to boost its coverage of the arts in what its director general calls its "strongest commitment to the arts in a generation".

"The arts are for everyone, and from now on BBC Arts will be at the very heart of what we do," said Tony Hall.

Programmes include an animated film by War Horse author Michael Morpurgo and a Northern Ballet version of Three Little Pigs for the CBeebies channel.

Lord Hall spoke to BBC Art's Correspondent Rebecca Jones about the plans.
