So far, no NHS trust has apologised for Savile – despite him being given the keys to Broadmoor, a bedroom room at Stoke Mandeville and free rein of Leeds General Infirmary.A BBC spokesman told Mail Online today: 'As a result of the allegations about Jimmy Savile and subsequent contact from staff, former staff and members of the public, we are currently aware of nine allegations of sexual harassment, assault or inappropriate conduct regarding current staff or contributors.
Nestled in the Highlands a mile from any other building is paedophile Jimmy Savile's Scottish hideaway, and these pictures show the chilling scene inside the cottage where he may have abused more than 20 people.
Because the cottage remains untouched since his death, it is stacked full of photos, clothes and documents, which could lead to identifying more victims or help those who have already made allegations of abuse.
And the problem appears to be widespread, serious, poorly understood and perhaps ultimately to reflect a lack of individual morality.
"An estimated 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 7 boys in Australia have been sexually abused before the age of sixteen!
He agreed that it was 'wrong' for a BBC executive to rely on the misleading information when writing to Conservative chairman Grant Shapps ahead of his appearance to discuss the Savile case on BBC1’s Question Time.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s World at One, Lord Patten said: 'Whatever the other questions we get asked and the other considerations, our main concern has to be for the victims of abuse and worse - men as well as women, but mostly women, who have been marooned for years, trying to tell their stories and not being believed - including, it seems, by the BBC.
In Summary: It will be suggested that, rather than focusing on particular institutions and individuals who have been unable to manage the problem of child abuse, the most important question should be why sexual abuse of children has now emerged as a very widespread problem in the first place.
Brisbane's Anglican Archbishop commissioned an inquiry but unfortunately its terms of reference were too narrow to seriously address the problem of child sex abuse or to take account of the effect of general dysfunctions in the Anglican Church.
And he stressed that the BBC Trust was not involved in the editorial decisions made by the broadcaster: 'We don't have any executive responsibility over the BBC, we are the strategic authority, we have the obligation to hold the BBC to account for complying with the law, with statutory regulations and with our objectives for programme quality.
But answering questions in the Commons, Mr Lansley said: “There are inquiries being undertaken by the police, of course, as a criminal investigation; by Kate Lampard on behalf of the NHS and appointed by the BBC two inquiries by Nick Pollard and by Dame Janet Smith.'All of those are independent and I see no reason for us at this stage to think that there would be any merit in seeking to overturn those inquiries which are making progress but simply to make sure, which I know they will, that they all respect and understand that the police’s criminal investigation must take precedence.'The inquiry will be a 'watershed' moment in the investigation of child abuse, he said, adding nobody has yet been arrested or interviewed under caution as yet, but the force is 'preparing an arrest strategy;.
It is noted that: The Anglican Church's inquiry generated a 'witch-hunt' that led to risks to Australia's system of government related to politicizing the Governor General's role - as either an ally or opponent of democratically elected governments.
