This still does not answer for me a much more important question. With all of the apparent knowledge of SAVILE at the BBC, at least at the rumor level, why was the Director General not running an organizaiton the entire time he was there that would have heard those allegations and acted upon them. Surely, no competent executive would have simply said that this happened on someone else's watch. Why did THOMPSON not organize the organization such that this would have been addressed long ago? That, to me, is the core question, not simply the issue around the aborted broadcast at the end of last year.
