In 1994 he joined BBC Worldwide as Director of Strategy and was appointed Managing Director of BBC Worldwide Television in September establishing significant joint ventures with Discovery Communications Inc. on a global basis, and with Flextech in the UK creating UKTV in November 1997, Dick joined UKTV the following year.
