A brand new Netflix docuseries, Jimmy Savile: An English Horror Story, informs the storyline of United kingdom Radio and tv personality Jimmy Savile and just how he “charmed the country together with his eccentricity and philanthropy.” Savile being knighted through the Queen of England for his charitable endeavors. As he died, his funeral was broadcast around the BBC. 

Savile was noted for his grand personality and appearances on shows like The surface of the Pops, Jim’ll Repair It and also the BBC Radio however, countless sexual abuse allegations against Saville that surfaced after his dying have revealed the disturbing truth about him. 

The docuseries contains archival footage of Savile and explores how he fooled the country for such a long time. Based on the official Netflix synopsis, you will find over 450 allegations of sexual assault and abuse against him. A few of the alleged victims were as youthful as 5-years-old at that time they are saying these were mistreated. 

Savile is purported to have preyed on countless people, assaulting and raping many victims in dressing rooms, schools, along with other places. It wasn’t until after his dying this year, the reports of his many years of predatory behavior were uncovered.

Based on the joint report “Giving Victims a Voice” through the Metropolitan Police and NSPCC, Jimmy Savile was among the UK’s “most prolific known sexual predators.”  

The report was conducted as part of Operation Yewtree — a criminal analysis into Savile that started after five women on the 2012 ITV program accused Savile of sexual abuse throughout the 1970s. 

The first report of abuse was from 1955 in Manchester. The final was reported in ’09. 

The report alleged that “the details supplied by the sufferers of his sexual abuse paint the image of the mainly opportunistic individual that used his celebrity status like a effective tool to coerce or control them, preying around the vulnerable or star-struck for his sexual gratification.

“It has become obvious that Savile was hiding in plain sight and taking advantage of his celebrity status and fundraiser activity to achieve out of control use of vulnerable people across six decades,” the report mentioned.
