The BBC have revealed more details about the Pollard review into issues relating to Newsnight's investigation into Jimmy Savile sexual abuse allegations.
The independent review which is being carried out by Nick Pollard is expected to report to the BBC Executive Board by mid-November.
Mr Pollard will consider:
- Were there any failings in the BBC’s management of the Newsnight investigation
- The editorial decision in respect of the Newsnight investigation
- A blog dated 2 October 2012 posted by the Editor of Newsnight (which was changed by the BBC on 22 October 2012)
Amid the fallout from the Jimmy Savile scandal the BBC is investigating nine allegations of sexual harassment among staff and contributors.
BBC boss George Entwistle has spent almost two hours taking questions from MPs about the corporation's handling of the Savile scandal.
Ex-BBC boss Mark Thompson has told ITV News he will help with any inquiry into the corporation and its handling of the Savile allegations.
