Savile and Hall: BBC 'missed chances to stop attacks'


The BBC repeatedly failed to stop "monstrous" abuse by DJ Jimmy Savile and broadcaster Stuart Hall because of a "culture of fear", a report says.

source

The Dame Janet Smith review identified 72 victims of Savile - including eight who were raped - and 21 victims of Hall, over five decades from 1959.
She said BBC culture "was deeply deferential" and staff were reluctant to speak to managers about complaints.
Director general Lord Hall said the BBC had failed to protect the victims.
The review found that senior managers were not told of complaints about Savile because of an "atmosphere of fear" which still exists in the BBC.
However, a small number of BBC managers in Manchester had been aware of Hall's conduct, it said.
Hall, 86, who presented TV show It's a Knockout, was jailed in 2013 after admitting indecently assaulting 13 girls.

Read news article about an Eton toff who escaped jail despite having over 2000 depraved kid rape photos on his pc and was sharing them. His father was a wealthy Solicitor. (and possibly rolled his trouser leg up...he says cynically)
