Jimmy Saville

  1. Alexei Sayle, Doctor Who #142: Revelation of the Daleks, 1985.         The Liverpool stand-up won The DJ away from rocker and ex-child actor Phil Collins, future Harry Potter star Robbie Coltrane, Kenneth Cranham, Nicky Henson and two genuine BBC disc-jockeys: Alan Freeman and the dreaded Saville… named in 2012 as the serial sex-abuser of 450 victims, in children’s hospital (where, due to his charity wotk, he was given a key!) and BBC studio dressingrooms. Over six decades his victims included 10 boys aged as young as eight, 63 were girls between 13-16 – 34 rapes were reported across 28 police forces. The BBC seemd to ignore what most everyone knew what was going on. As a result, Savile was never charged during his lifetime.
