The BBC will publish transcripts of information which concerns the Jimmy Savile case onto the internet on Friday, 22nd February. Around 3,000 pages will be made available to the general public, although the report has been edited in parts.
The transcripts, which are part of the Pollard inquiry, will consist of interviews held, including those with certain BBC figureheads. Transcripts of emails and text messages will also be included in the document, although parts of the report on the whole have been censored.
This comes as the latest news surrounding the Jimmy Savile sex-abuse scandal.
The interviews which were carried out are thought to have involved 19 different individuals, according to reports.
Previously Lord Patten, the BBC Trust Chairman, had said that certain information gained by Nick Pollard, former Head of Sky News, and his inquiry would be published.
ITV broadcasted a documentary in October last year entitled The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, which came as a result of the BBC being in the spotlight. This relates to the reason why a Newsnight investigation concerning the late Savile was shelved.
The Jim'll Fix It presenter and host of popular TV show Top of the Pops died in October2011.
