The Crime Analyst | Ep 76 | Investigating Jimmy Savile with Meirion Jones, Part 2

Episode 76,  May 24, 04:01 AM

Laura continues her conversation with Meirion Jones, who along with Liz MacKean, investigated Jimmy Savile when they worked for the BBC. Together they lifted the lid on Savile’s prolific and serial sexual offending behaviour targeting the most vulnerable in society.

Meirion takes us behind the scenes of his and Liz’s complex BBC Newsnight investigation, including how the BBC shut down the investigation and the subsequent cover up by the BBC, the health service, the West Yorkshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service. 

Laura and Meirion discuss the scale of Savile’s offending, the ecosystem that supported and enabled him and what the lessons are from this case. 

Trigger warning: This case is deeply disturbing, and this episode is a difficult listen but an important conversation. Listener discretion is advised.
