'Their 166-page report, Future of the BBC, says the corporation has squandered hundreds of millions of pounds, handing out sky-high pay-offs to sacked staff and wasting massive sums on vanity projects.
And they highlight a ‘bleak period’ in the 1970s and 1980s when presenters including Jimmy Savile carried out scores of sex attacks, including rapes, on BBC premises.
