The BBC will carry out two inquiries into the scandal surrounding allegations of sexual abuse against Sir Jimmy Savile, its director general has said.
Speaking at a news conference, George Entwistle repeated his apology to those involved for what had happened and gave details of the two investigations.
The first will start immediately, looking at why a Newsnight investigation into the allegations was shelved last year.
The second will begin when police give the go-ahead, and examine whether the culture at the BBC in the years Jimmy Savile was there enabled him to carry out the sexual abuse of children.
