I'm not sure if I want to watch this documentary tonight now. I will see it, I feel like I have to, but it's going to be an uncomfortable watch

Now I'm thinking is more appropriate. Esther Rantzen looked like a broken woman when she heard those interviews.

I didn't watch it but I am shamefully intrigued.
I gather it'll be on the online ITV-player?

It should be, I imagine a lot of people will want to see it.

Or maybe like me, not wanting to, but feeling obliged to after this week's buildup to it. It was already mentioned in the thread, but Saville's defence of Gary Glitter made for some uneasy listening.

To be honest I am sort of 'in and out' of these allegations against Jimmy Saville,but I know of the bear brunt of the sorry affair.
Having witnessed a clip on the Telegraph website i'm indifferent if I want to check it out or not.

OK, so I didn't watch it, but have obviously read a number of stories during the week and saw a few interviews that, presumably, were taken from the documentary. Now, this is all very serious, sickening stuff, however, during one interview (which was being voice-overed to protect the identity of the victim) it was described how the victim was wearing glasses and entered Jimmy's room and he dropped his jogging bottoms and said something to the effect ofm"How's about that then?"". This was obviously a traumatic event for the victim and was a condeming account of Jimmy's actions, but I could not help laughing at the thought of Jimmy Saville, pants round ankles, cigar in hand, jingle jangle jewelry all over the shop shouting... "How's about that then?!". Me and the missus both burst into laughter when it was played on the news. it sounded like a fucking comedy sketch parody of the man..."Oh, Oh, Now then, Now then, How's about that?!". Seriously, that nearly broke me last night.

Also, for those thast did watch, just how damning was it? Would you say the jury is still out, or is it pretty cut and dried? Seems like more and more branches of the force are getting complaints....

What's more worrying is that more branches of the police are admitting they received complaints before he died and they were chucked out for 'insufficient evidence' or other reasons - but none of them apparently knew others were also getting complaints.

I used to imagine police investigating stuff in order to find evidence. Strange notion, now, when I think about it.

Just about to watch it.

EDIT:
Well...

What really pissed me off,other than J.Saville being a complete fecking pedophile child abusing bastard,was the fact that there were witness's to some of these events and which they ,either, simply swept it under the carpet or shockingly saw nothing serious in these disturbing circumstances.

But then again J.Saville had the nations heart in his grasp and any of these accusations from these unfortunate girls would arguably be much more harm than good,in which case these Girls would be getting twice the pain.

J.Saville cant be punished now that he's passed away and he couldn't get punished when he was alive.Sickening.

I did watch it, i dont remember the "how's about that then?!" part though, maybe i missed it....anyway yes its pretty damming if you ask me, i''m just disappointed nobody beat the fucker to a bloody pulp when he was alive and wiped that fucking smug smirk off his ratty little face.

I cant confirm if it was in the documentary. It was an interview played out on Regional BBC News, Look North yesterday just after 6.30pm. I assumed it was an excerpt from the documentary, but I guess it couldve quite easily have been an interview done directly with Look North. Either way, it was one of the most unintentionally hilarious moments on tv I've seen in ages.

Trus, but if this is all as genuine as it's begining to look, hopefully it will at least correct the kind of image people have of him - national treasure and saintly in his charity work.

I'm on the fence.

I do think it's very possible Saville abuse young teenager girls but I'm amaze how it wasn't exposed. If the program is correct then why didn't people notice it and confront him?

If this was correct there was an awful lot of people facilitating his actions.

I found it a bit distasteful of the Jimmy Savile Trust to say at the end that the allegations "may impact on the Charitable Trust's endeavours." I think the investigation is a bit more important than your endeavours, actually - worthy as they are. Seemed like the exact same way of keeping the girls quiet in the first place.

Although, it has to be said, the allegation that he made a girl put her finger up his bum was even more distasteful.

Especially as there was a specific allegation made that he used charitable activities to protect himself from investigation. Ill-thought out comment that one.

I'm not sure if it was a pensioner, but it was a claim made BY a pensioner.

Mind you, she said that she thought the patient had brain damage, so it's still...

The Times story suggests his autobiography is pretty much all the evidence anyone should have needed

http://timesopinion.tumblr.com/post/32804536645/jimmy-saviles-affections-laid-bare-by-jimmy-savile

I don't think his status as a "national treasure" endured much past the early 90s. By the end it was an open secret that he was a creep.

Yes, you're right, (I only saw the second half of the news item).
Another woman has also said he molested her in a hospital in Leeds while on his charitable 'porter' duties - though this one was merely recovering from spinal surgery.

So what we're all discovering/what's being suggested/ALLEGED then is that if it was human and female, he'd have a go, regardless of whether or not there was a pulse.

Wowsers.

Even when I was an innocent kid watching Jim'll Fix It and had no thoughts of adults doing horrible things to children, I always thought he was weird and, really, none of this comes as any surprise to me at all (if it IS all true).
