Good afternoon, and welcome to our coverage of the Pollard Review into Newsnight's shelving of a report on alleged sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile. We'll also be covering the release and reaction to a separate report into how the same programme broadcast an incorrect story which led Lord McAlpine to be implicated in child abuse allegations.
Nick Pollard, former head of Sky News and author of one of the Newsnight reports, is now addressing the conference which is being held at New Broadcasting House in central London.
Nick Pollard says his report concentrates on the decision by Newsnight to axe a report into Savile abuse allegations. He says he found the decision was not made "for any improper reason" but is speaking of serious failings.
Mr Pollard says decisions about the Newsnight report were hampered by "rigid management chains".
The key to the Pollard findings here is that BBC management has been criticised but the review found no evidence of a cover-up.

There have been some changes at a senior level as a result of the report. Helen Boaden is to return to her role as Director of News.
Adrian Van Klaveren has a new role - he is being replaced as Controller of Radio 5 Live by Jonathan Wall, currently a commissioning editor.
Lord Patten says the BBC will publish everything from the Pollard Review including transcripts - with some redactions for legal reasons.
Nick Pollard is still speaking: There were clearly "serious problems all the way through this process" in which Newsnight decided to shelve the Savile report in December 2011.
