Inefficiency. It’s a criticism often levelled at the BBC by a certain species of rapacious vulture who sees the corporation not as the lustrous national gem it is, but as an unjust barrier to the extent to which they’re able to feather their own nests. The BBC is full of waste, they caw. The BBC must be more efficient!
If any of the vultures had the nous to watch BBC Two at 10pm on a Tuesday night for the past few weeks, they’d have been delighted. Well, not delighted. »

She’s thinking pink!
Amal Clooney stepped out in New York City Wednesday night, rocking the traditionally feminine hue from head to (almost) toe.
Wearing the dark-pink Bottega Veneta Cruise Collection Velvet Devore dress with a brick-like pattern over her growing baby bump, Clooney finished her look with the Bottega Veneta Cruise Collection Cashmere Overcoat in dusty rose, matching Bottega Veneta Roma handbag, pink lipstick and black pumps.

When Amal Clooney first started dating her movie star husband, George, there was a lot of (warranted) backlash to publications who referred to the highly accomplished human rights attorney as simply "George Clooney's girlfriend," and later, "George Clooney's wife." Although it's important for Amal to be defined by her own achievements, she's making the best of her unexpected star status. In an interview with BBC News at Six's Fiona Bruce, the 39-year-old mom-to-be said she's thankful that her newfound fame helps publicize certain issues. "There's a lot of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen," she said. "I think if there are more people who now understand what's happening about the Yazidis and Isis, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think it's a really good thing to give that case »

The human rights attorney and wife of George Clooney is calling for the Un to investigate allegations of genocide against the terrorist group. On Tuesday, she discussed the decision with Fiona Bruce on BBC News, which showed a haunting reel of Isis atrocities before the beginning of the interview.

During an interview with Fiona Bruce on BBC News at Six on Tuesday, the 39-year-old attorney explained that she views the fame that's come with her marriage as "a really good thing," that encourages others to become invested in what's happening around the world.
"I mean, there's lot of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen," she said. "I think if there are more people who now understand what's happening about the Yazidis and Isis, and if there can be some action that results from that, that can help those clients, then I think it's a really good thing to give that case the extra publicity that it may get."
Amal, who is »
Amal Clooney had a life long before she met George Clooney. As a result of George's international fame, Amal became somewhat of a celebrity in her own right. But the 39-year-old human rights lawyer, who is expecting twins, said she doesn't mind the attention that comes with being married to a movie star—if only for a very specific reason. "There is lots of my work that takes place behind closed doors that is not ever seen," Amal explained to Fiona Bruce Tuesday on BBC News at Six. From her perspective, if people are interested in her—for whatever reason—they may also become invested in her altruistic endeavors. "I think if there are more people who now understand what's »
