The PCC annual review 2009 is accompanied for the first time with a podcast in which the PCC Chairman, Baroness Buscombe and Stephen Abell, Director are interviewed by the media commentator Roy Greenslade.
The annual review is all about openness and transparency, which is why we wanted to invite someone from outside the organisation to conduct the interview.
