Speaking to BBC2's Newsnight, the BBC's acting Director General Tim Davie said it had been a "bad and sorry saga", but defended the lack of sackings.
BBC lawyers investigated whether money could be reclaimed from the departing director-general George Entwistle, BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten has said.
Mr Entwistle received £450,000 despite resigning in the wake of a Newsnight report that led to former Tory treasurer Lord McAlpine being wrongly accused of child abuse.
But Lord Patten said lawyers advised that it was not possible to reclaim the money.
Interviewed after the Pollard Report revealed worrying failures in communication at the top of the BBC chain of command, Lord Patten also defended the disciplinary action taken against staff.
ITV News' UK Editor Lucy Manning began by asking him why no one had been sacked:
Following the publication of the Pollard Report, which said Newsnight editor Peter Rippon's decision to drop the programme's Jimmy Savile investigation was flawed, he said:
Two of the reporters who worked on the original investigation in to Jimmy Savile for Newsnight have spoken outside of the BBC.
Both Liz Mackean and Meirion Jones issued very strong statements criticising the BBC. Ms Mackean said the BBC breached duty to women who said Savile a paedophile.
Mr Jones said that last Christmas the BBC knew that Savile was a paedophile yet decided to run tribute programmes.
He added: "I hope the BBC takes measures to make sure nothing like that will ever happen again".
Former BBC Director-General George Entwistle has suggested the Pollard Report has exonerated him of involvement in the decision to shelve Newsnight's Jimmy Savile investigation.
Following the publication of the Pollard Report, Stephen Mitchell, Deputy Head of News at the BBC, has released the following statement announcing that he retiring, despite earlier reports from the BBC that he was resigning:
ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning asked the report author Nick Pollard how he felt as a journalist about what happened at Newsnight.
The former head of Sky News said that the personal difficulties between members of the team were "quite shocking."
ITV News UK Editor Lucy Manning asked BBC Acting Director-General Tim Davie why after the criticisms in the Pollard report, no one had lost their jobs.
Mr Davie said that, "the Director General has left the BBC, the Deputy Director of News has left the BBC and we're putting a totally new team in to Newsnight.
"Now I think there will be a lot of people with theories about what we should or shouldn't have done, I would say - go to the report and look at it calmly and think about what is fair and proportionate.
"That's what I've done and I think we've made the right decision."
