Review

ITV will rightly garner awards for its exposure of the odious Jimmy Savile. But the channel also deserves credit for resisting any urge to punch the air in triumph at the impact – both journalistic and societal – of its investigation. Tonight Mark Williams-Thomas, whose persistence led to those first shocking revelations seven weeks ago, returns to the story to examine how Savile was able to contaminate the lives of so many for so long.

Summary

Almost two months on from Exposure's documentary The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, Mark Williams-Thomas tracks the progress of the police investigation into sexual abuse claims made against the former TV and radio star, asking how he achieved his considerable power and influence.
