In a statement on Monday, BBC board members said they "accepted [the] findings in full" of a report, published last week, into the interview held by journalist Martin Bashir.


Lord John Dyson, who chaired the review, said "deceitful behavior" was used that was in "serious breach" of the BBC's producer guidelines, over efforts to secure the interview.

A subsequent investigation by the BBC into how the interview was secured also "fell short of the high standards of integrity and transparency which are its hallmark," Lord Dyson added.


"We have confidence that the processes and guidelines in today's BBC are much stronger than they were in 1995, but we know we must also do what we can to prevent such an incident happening again," the board of directors said in a statement on Monday.


"As such, we think it is right that we review the effectiveness of the BBC's editorial policies and governance in detail," they added.

After the report was published, former BBC director-general Lord Tony Hall quit his current role as chairman of London's National Gallery.


He left the BBC last year. Bashir has already stepped down from his role as religion editor and left the organization 10 days ago due to health issues.


In an interview with the Sunday Times, Bashir said he "never wanted to harm" Diana with the interview, adding: "I don’t believe we did."
