The BBC has confirmed it has pulled two archive editions of "Top of the Pops" fronted by Sir Jimmy Savile from TV schedules in the wake of the abuse allegations made against the star.
A BBC spokeswoman said it was appropriate to "postpone" screenings of TOTP over the next two Thursdays as it was a "live issue".
BBC4 has been screening old editions of the hit chart show each week for almost 18 months, beginning with programmes from 1976.
Jimmy Savile was questioned as a suspect by police investigating the Yorkshire Ripper, according to a retired police officer.
Jimmy Savile's nephew has spoken of the emotional turmoil his family is going through in the wake of the sex abuse allegations.
A colleague of Jimmy Savile allegedly raped a woman on BBC premises in 1970, ITV News has been told.
