I always wanted to work at the BBC. Episode 38 - Mohammed Akhlaq, Chief Technology Officer, ITN

Mohammed Akhlaq, ITN’s current CTO had an early desire to work for the BBC and was fortunate enough to make that a reality in the late 80’s. He recalls some wonderful memories of his time there, along with some amazing people who inspired him along the way.

From the BBC, he went on to join Al Jazeera where he played a key role in launching their first US studio and channel. He talks with passion, and authority, and you have a real sense that his experience results in a very level-headed leadership style.
