Savile crisis, political reporting

Duration:
30 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 24 October 2012

The Director of Editorial Policy and Standards David Jordan talks to Steve Hewlett and explains how the BBC appears to have got its wires so hopelessly crossed over the shelving of Newsnight's film on Jimmy Savile.

And why do TV Political Editors insist on standing in front of iconic Westminster locations. Nick Robinson talks about his new book The Inside Story of Politics, Power and the Media.

Producer Beverley Purcell.
