    Dr. Tom Mills - Lecturer in Sociology and Policy at Aston University, Birmingham

    Before he joined Aston University in 2016, he was a researcher at the University of Bath where he worked on the ESRC funded project, 'Understanding and Explaining Terrorism: Expertise in Practice'. Whilst at Bath he also completed his PhD research, examining how the collapse of social democracy and the rise of neoliberalism impacted on the BBC's organisational structure and culture; work which forms the basis of his book The BBC: Myth of a Public Service.   His work is centrally concerned with the ideas and practices of powerful groups and actors, and the social networks which influence policymaking.

    William Tyndale was born around 1494 in Gloucestershire and educated at Oxford and Cambridge University where he became a strong supporter of church reform. He was ordained as a priest in around 1521 and returned to Gloucestershire to serve as a chaplain to a member of the local gentry. Tyndale's controversial opinions began to attract the attention of the church authorities. ©BBC
