Tony Hall: BBC's role 'vital in internet age'
The BBC's Director General, Tony Hall, has said the Corporation is at a crossroads, facing a future in which it could either continue as a "creative beacon to the world" or "sleep-walk" into decay.
Lord Hall said the licence fee, which is not currently required to watch TV on the BBC iPlayer, had to be amended to cover catch-up television.
He told the BBC News Channel the role of the BBC in the internet age remained vital.
And he said the Corporation continued to be a major part of the fabric of Britain.
