Jimmy Savile: BBC director-general faces MPs' questions
Rosa SilvermanGeorge Entwistle, the BBC director-general, will be questioned about the broadcaster’s handling of the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal by a committee of MPs today.
He will face the Culture, Media and Sport select committee a day after Peter Rippon, the editor of Newsnight, stepped aside. The BBC had said Mr Rippon’s explanation of why the show dropped its investigation into Savile was "inaccurate or incomplete".
The committee is expected to quiz Mr Entwistle, who took up his post last month, about the two reviews into the case set up by the BBC, the corporation’s vetting procedures at the time it employed the late DJ and its existing policies on sexual harassment.
