LONDON  - The BBC began disciplinary proceedings on Tuesday over a news report that wrongly accused a British politician of child sex abuse as it widened the hunt for a new leader to tackle one of the worst crises in its history. The world’s largest broadcasting organisation, which marks its 90th birthday on Wednesday, reportedly wants an outsider for its new director-general who could overhaul an unwieldly management culture. The “Beeb” is under a pall caused by two programmes - one smearing Conservative politician Alistair McAlpine, which was broadcast, and another which was shelved but accused late star Jimmy Savile of being a paedophile.
