One thing I'm not sure about.
Was Jimmy Savile a full-time employee of the BBC or was he a freelance who hired out "Jimmy Savile Ltd" to the corporation. If he was a freelance, surely no-one can claim compensation from the BBC because they had no employer responsibility.
It would be equivalent to the girls exploited by Gary Glitter trying to claim compensation from whichever record label he was on at the time.
I would say a more apt comparison is that if a child was abused at a school by a supply teacher provided an agency, you probably wouldn't go lightly on the school just because they didn't employ them directly.
