Pedestrian's walk past the BBC's New Broadcasting House in London December 19, 2012. The BBC did not put pressure on its flagship news show to drop a sex expose into Jimmy Savile but staff emails published by an inquiry showed that some knew about a "darker side" to the former star even as they prepared a tribute programme.
