BBC bosses questioned by MPs over payments

BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten has called the size of severance payments made to senior BBC managers a matter of "shock and dismay".

Lord Patten and director general Lord Hall have been questioned by MPs on the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) over £25m paid to 150 outgoing executives.

He said he was not told some payoffs went beyond contractual terms.

David Sillito reports.
