Former BBC director general Greg Dyke is to present a Channel 4 documentary on his four years at the corporation.
Mr Dyke resigned in the wake of the Hutton report
The show, made by independent producers Mentorn, will be aired in September to tie in with the publication of Mr Dyke's memoirs.
He resigned from the BBC in January following criticism of the corporation in the Hutton Report.
There is speculation that the book and show will contain criticism of the government and Lord Hutton's findings.
In his report into the death of scientist Dr David Kelly, Lord Hutton made serious criticism of the BBC's journalistic practices.
The inquiry concluded that an allegation in a report by ex-BBC reporter Andrew Gilligan, which accused the government of deliberately exaggerating the case for war, was "unfounded".
Mr Dyke - who as the BBC's director general acted as its editor-in-chief - resigned alongside Gavyn Davies, chairman of the board of governors. Mr Dyke has now been replaced by former Channel 4 head Mark Thompson, while Michael Grade has replaced Mr Davies.
HarperCollins, which is publishing Mr Dyke's memoirs, has told readers to "expect fireworks".
Channel 4 is to screen a drama examining the motivation of the terrorists who carried out the 11 September attacks.
The Hamburg Cell, to be broadcast around the time of the third anniversary of the event, will consider what motivated the students who crashed a passenger planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
The 100-minute film will chart events from their first meeting in Hamburg through to the attacks in 2001.
The drama is scripted by Alice Perman and Fields of Gold writer Ronan Bennett, and directed by Antonia Bird, who made Robert Carlyle movie Face and the award-winning film Priest.
