Jimmy Savile - The Facts

   Born in Leeds as James Wilson Vincent Savile in 1926

   Died on 29th October 2011, (aged 84) in Leeds, West Yorkshire

   He was an English Disc Jockey, television presenter, media personality and charity fundraiser. He hosted the BBC television show Jim’ll Fix It, was the first and last presenter of the long-running BBC music chart show Top of the Pops, and raised an estimated £40 million for charities.

   A year after his death, hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse and rape were made, when he wasn’t able to defend himself, and his relations were not in a position to defend a multitude of claims.

   Might have been one of Britain's most prolific sexual offenders.   All these claims appeared after Jimmy Savile’s estate had been published.

Jimmy was conscripted  to work in the coal mines as a Bevin Boy during the Second World War. He began a career playing records in, and later managing, dance halls. His media career started as a disc jockey at Radio Luxembourg in 1958

During his lifetime, he was noted for fundraising and supporting charities and hospitals, in particular Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Leeds General Infirmary and Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire.

He was described in ‘The Guardian’ as a "prodigious philanthropist" and was honoured for his charity work.. He was awarded the OBE in 1971 and was knighted in 1990.

Early Life

   He was the youngest of seven children (his elder siblings were Mary, Marjory, Vincent, John, Joan, and Christina) in a Roman Catholic family. His parents were Vincent Joseph Marie Savile (died 1953), a bookmaker’s  clerk and insurance agent, and his wife, Agnes Monica Savile (née Kelly; died 1973).    Jimmy believed he owed his life to the intercession of the Venerable Margaret Sinclair, a Scottish nun, after he recovered quickly from illness, possibly pneumonia at the age of two when his mother prayed at Leeds Cathedral after Reading a pamphlet about Sinclair.

He became a semi-professional sportsman, competing in the 1951 Tour of Britain cycle race and working as a professional wrestler.

   He said,

If you look at the athletics of it, I've done over 300 professional bike races, 212 marathons and 107 pro fights. [He proudly announces that he lost all of his first 35 fights.] No wrestler wanted to go back home and say a long-haired disc jockey had put him down. So from start to finish I got a good hiding. I've broken every bone in my body. I loved it.


In 1968 he joined BBC Radio One, where he presented Savile's Travels, a weekly programme broadcast on Sundays in which he travelled around the UK talking to members of the public. From 1969 to 1973 he fronted Speakeasy, a discussion programme for teenagers. On Radio 1 he presented the Sunday lunchtime show Jimmy Savile's Old Record Club, playing top tens from years gone by. It was the first show to feature old charts and Savile used a "points system" in an imaginary quiz with the audience to guess the names of the song and artist. It began in 1973 as The Double Top Ten Show, and ended in 1987 as The Triple Top Ten Show when he left Radio 1 after 19 years.


    On New Year's Day 1964 he presented the first edition of the BBC music chart television programme Top of the Pops from a television studio in a converted church in Dickenson Road, Rusholme, Manchester.

    On 30 July 2006, he co-hosted the final weekly edition, ending it with the words "It's number one, it's still Top of the Pops", before turning off the studio lights after the closing credits. When interviewed by the BBC on 20 November 2008 and asked about the revival of Top of the Pops for a Christmas comeback, he said he would welcome a "cameo role" in the programme

On Sky News, Thurs 25th June it was reported that J.S. was interfering with bodies in the Mortuary, Leeds Infirmary.  We are not defending any abnormal behaviour on behalf of J.S. or any of the other celebrities that are now in prison.   However, it was well known that Jimmy acted as porter on occasions and one of the tasks of porters is taking patients to Xray, surgery, or in the case of deceased patients, to the mortuary.   With all the mud-slinging that has gone on during the last few months it doesn’t take too much imagination to add filthy suggestions which may well not contain any truth.   This jury is  still out !  It’s no crime for men to like women !

After Jimmy Saviles estate was published, 450 claimed abuse by him.

The Home Secretary [The Rt. Hon. Theresa May] said she wanted transparency.  Unfortunately, this only included those that are accused, never the names of the accusers.   Since these accusers weren’t raped or murdered, why is it that they can remain nameless ?    With the world recession during the last 10 years, many have accrued large credit card debt.   Surely, if names are not revealed it must be tempting to accuse Jimmy of a sexual offence, particularly as he is no longer around to defend himself.

I repeat, why transparency for the accused but not the accusers ?
