They should get into the spirit of the thing and award medals for the best productions - also drug test all participants.

However, Trevor Nunn did at least give all the money back to the NT - Peter Hall didn't. According to rumour Nunn also financed his famous RSC "Othello" entirely out of his own piocket.

My "transparency" comment did relate to Trevor Nunn. I vaguely remember rumours that he financially supported the NT Transformations season amongst other projects. I hadn't heard about Othello, which was the last production in the old The Other Place in Stratford, but it seems to me a bit murky to subsidise one's own production and so perhaps influence a subsidised company's programming. Mind you, it was a fantastic production!

And according to the book "Impossible Plays" the other directors working at the NT under Hall were not allowed to profit from commercial transfers.

As part of the realignment and repositioning of the building, the rubbish store on the riverside will be replaced by a new bar and restaurant, the river entrance opened up, and the set and prop workshops glazed so they are visible to the public. There will be a new education centre at the back of the building. The Cottesloe theatre will be closed, rebuilt and reopened as the Dorfman, named for the chairman of Travelex who sponsored Hytner’s hugely successful £10 ticket offers for the Olivier Theatre and who donated £10 million to NT Futures. Once all this, and the National’s 50th anniversary in October 2013, are out of the way, Hytner will step down.
