Following a whirlwind week, the Broadcast Newswrap gets into the weeds of Piers Morgan’s GMB departure and Bectu head Philippa Childs is on hand to assess how the development will impact the industry’s fight against bullying and harassment.

In response to Ian Katz’s reminder to on-screen talent, Childs urges the broadcasters to be more transparent and make a strong public statement against bullying.

Meanwhile, international editor John Elmes, reporter Hannah Bowler and senior reporter Max Goldbart discuss GMB succession plans and mull the future of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

Plus, ’What We’ve Been Watchin’’ features a royal interview, a Channel 4 90s cult classic and a double helping of Jed Mercurio.
