BBC director-general George Entwistle today offered a "profound and heartfelt apology" to the alleged victims of Sir Jimmy Savile's sexual abuse as he announced that two inquiries would be launched.One will look into whether there were any failings over the handling of an abandoned Newsnight investigation into the late DJ and broadcaster.A second independent inquiry will look into the "culture and practices of the BBC during the years Jimmy Savile worked here", Mr Entwistle said.
