Faking It: Jimmy Savile - discovery+ FULL VIDEO
Experts in body language, linguistics and forensic psychology examine how one of the biggest stars in British television and showbusiness got away with decades of sexual abuse.
Who was Jimmy Savile?
Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile, popularly known as Jimmy Savile, was an English DJ, radio and television personality, and fundraiser. Jimmy was one of Britain’s biggest stars who started his career playing records, followed by managing dance halls and later becoming a DJ on radio and television. He rose to fame after he started presenting the ‘BBC’ show ‘Jim’ll Fix It,’ which ran for more than 15 years. In the show, Jimmy arranged ways to fulfill the dreams of regular people, mostly, children. That clearly exhibited his love for mankind. Being a philanthropist, he was associated with several fundraisers and charity shows for which he was later awarded the ‘OBE’ in 1971. He was also knighted in 1990 for his efforts to change people’s lives. At the time of his death, he was praised for his fund-raising efforts, but hundreds of allegations of sexual abuse were made against him after his death. The police made investigations into the allegations and described him as a ‘predatory sex offender,’ who had allegedly abused more than 500 people from 1955 to 2009, most of them children and young girls.
