None of the most atrocious passages related to British television hide behind the image of Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile, who as host of the Top of the Pops program, for almost three decades was known simply as Jimmy Savile.
Among the nobility
During this time, the character with the long blonde hair earned the esteem of even Queen Elizabeth who knighted him. However, behind his “charismatic” personality was hidden his dark side as a sexual predator and even addicted to the practice of necrophilia .
A little over 10 years after his death, Netflix launches the documentary Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story, a production that exposes the ability of the character who, under the protection of being considered a television celebrity, sexually abused hundreds of minors.
Through a series of interviews, the documentary tries to unite the loose ends left by Jimmy , who gave free rein to his carnal desires with infants whose deadly sin was trusting the idol that for more than 2,200 broadcasts entered the homes of millions of families through a television program through which the best artists of the moment passed.
A report published jointly by the British Association for the Prevention of Child Abuse and the Metropolitan Police stated that 450 people had reported Savile for abuse between 1955 and 2009.
However, the long-haired driver managed to evade justice practically until his death in 2011, after which he was considered one of the worst sex offenders in the United Kingdom.
“He knew that fame and power gave him all the doors. With him, you accepted things as normal, but it was abnormal”, one of the people who were consulted to give life to a controversial project is heard mentioning in the trailer that promises to be among the best productions of the year.
He was a national treasure. After his death, he was exposed as a sexual predator, with over 450 sickening allegations of abuse.
