Esther Rantzen says she knew about it but Savile was so powerful she didn't think there was much chance of convincing senior Beeb people about him. She was married to a senior Been official for god's sake, Desmond Wilcox!
I bet she's saying "Jim fixed it for me to get back on telly!"
I must admit Savile always came over as a bit creepy, but why wait until he can't answer back?
I'm not particularly fond of ER and if I'm honest that was my first thought too. But I'm beginning to think Saville had things over people in high places and to all intents and purposes *was* fireproof. I bet many people had threatened to expose him but were either intimidated out of it or were threatened with losing their jobs. And he wasn't alone was he? If he went down, several others would come down with him, so they probably ensured people were hushed up.
I now think most of these allegations are true and even if he can't face justice, the victims deserve to be heard.
