The Pollard Review contains criticism of former Director-General George Entwistle, Head of News Helen Boaden, her deputy Stephen Mitchell and Newsnight Editor Peter Rippon.
There is criticism of Mr Entwistle for an "unncessarily cautious" approach when Helen Boaden told him at a lunch of the Savile investigation.
She is criticised for raising this in an inappropriate way, too casual and too fleeting. She is also criticised for not taking a more active role when the crisis hit the BBC. Ms Boaden, we learn, offered to resign if necessary, this wasn't accepted.
The Pollard report finds Newsnight Editor Peter Rippon's decision to drop the Savile story was "seriously flawed: he made a bad mistake in not examining the evidence properly."
But that there was no pressure on him by bosses to drop it.
The decision to drop the BBC Newsnight investigation into the Jimmy Savile sexual abuse claim was "flawed", according to a review.
A damning report into the BBC's Jimmy Savile investigation has revealed George Entwistle was previously warned about his "darker side".
