The BBC Trust has issued an apology to the victims of Jimmy Savile and Stuart Hall following the publication of a damning report into the corporation's handling of their behaviour.
Rona Fairhead said the corporation "turned a blind eye" and had "failed" the victims.
"It turned a blind eye, where it should have shone a light.
"And it did not protect those who put their trust in it."
A former Jim'll Fix It producer said he thought Savile's presence was "unnerving" to children.
Katrina Rose was just 14 when she was abused by Jimmy Savile but told ITV News she fears a similar scandal could happen again now.
Jimmy Savile's abuse could have been stopped if people had listened to "the small voice standing up against authority", Lord Hall has said.
