LONDON — A long-awaited report into the culture at the BBC that allowed TV personality Jimmy Savile to abuse children while working there has found that senior management were unaware of his actions.

Dame Janet Smith’s review, published Thursday morning, found that, while some staff were aware of Savile’s conduct, none of them reported it to their managers. Therefore she “found no evidence that the BBC as a corporate body was aware of Savile’s conduct.”

In the conclusion to her report, Smith wrote:

She added that a culture of “fear” prevented them from reporting their concerns.

Dame Janet Smith's long-awaited report into sexual abuse by the disgraced BBC broadcaster Jimmy Savile was published Thursday.
