Five things...I wish I'd said in my interview

I translate between coders and editorial without either side noticing.
The project management proto-methodology I invented has now been adopted for loads of other projects in my department (didn't find this out till after the interview though)
I want to advertise for programmers in newsletters like 'ouch' - I think it would be good for coders to have to deal with disabled people face-to-face
To save duplication and waste, why not make all public service development work (internally) open source?
You can't get much more involved with editorial policy than arguing about whether the BBC was allowed to call the netaid concerts 'NetAid'.

Adverts, eh? Hmm, I'll speak to the management ...

Yeah, well I haven't got the job yet. And I wanted to talk to you guys first, but I thought that if we were actively looking to increase our representation in those areas, then mentioning it in a place where fans of the BBC already *were* would be a good idea.

(Last night, pissed ramblings. Today, policy wonk :-)
