Alan Yentob in Citizen Yentob

The BBC has come in for more criticism after the 'Scott Walker' Imagine documentary when it announced that the prestigious Christmas Day schedule would include the movie 'Citizen Yentob'.

"This is a moving bio-pic of media tycoon Alan Yentob, charting his rise from humble beginnings to the creation of his global news delivering empire, and is in no way, just the film 'Citizen Kane' with Alan Yentob, edited in and reading bits over the original narration," claimed the Press release issued earlier today.

Not much is known about the film other than the mysterious opening line - "Roseberg" which drives the rest of the plot.

We tracked down Alan Yentob outside of Broadcasting House in West London where he angrily shouted at us, "Of course I fickin' made it. Yes. There was a talented young lad called Welles involved as well. He made the teas from what I can remember. Now fick off and leaves me alone!"

This accusation comes at a bad time for the BBC, coming in the wake of the phone-in scandals and the many budgetary constaints imposed on the organisation by the reduced increase in licence fee. The corporation has had to lower it's art-in-office-corridor budget to £1.5 Million per item and have had to sack all of their News 24 staff.

From November all news items will be repeated from previous bulletins, with the first 10 o'clock news of the month taken from the 6th July 1974.
