George Barnes: Information From Answers.com (420 words)
Sir George Barnes (1904-1960) was a British broadcasting executive, who was a station Controller of both BBC Radio and later BBC Television in the 1940s and 1950s.
However, this proved not to be a permanent career for Barnes, and after a short spell at the Cambridge University Press he joined the BBC in 1935 as a Producer in the Talks Department.
Barnes retired from broadcasting in 1956, becoming the Vice Chancellor of the University College of North Staffordshire, which was later to become known as Keele University.
