The list includes director of communications Ed Williams, whose total annual remuneration is £233,740.

The site even includes expenses, with Williams’ coming in at £48 for three taxi fares.

Director-general Mark Thompson's total remuneration package was £834,000.

BBC chief communications adviser Donald Steel said that the move was in the interests of openness and admitted that it was ‘almost inevitable’ that the media would highlight the figures.

‘We are not doing this for a short-term fix. The longer-term benefit is that companies and organisations that are more open will be more trusted,’ said Steel.
