Christa Ackroyd: The real truth behind my BBC sacking
I hate elephants in the room, don’t you ? So this week I thought I would address one which may come between us if I don’t, my sacking by the BBC. Not to go over old ground. Dad always used to tell me: ‘Never look back... It’s not the direction you are travelling in’. Good advice, Dad. Not always easy. But before we go any further, it wasn’t a tragedy. It’s not, as Mum would say, ‘the end of the world’. Having been a journalist for 40 years I have seen too much tragedy to ever call it that.
