How did Jimmy Savile get Broadmoor psychiatric hospital role?

There have been at least 500 reports of abuse by ex-BBC presenter Jimmy Savile, NSPCC research for Panorama has found.

Most of the alleged victims were between the ages of 13 and 15, but the youngest was two.

Meanwhile, leaked memos reveal the extent of Savile's influence at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital, where he was appointed to lead a task force to reform the hospital, as Shelley Jofre reports.

Panorama - Savile: The Power to Abuse is on BBC One on 2 June at 20:30 BST.
