In the early '70s Savile brought out an autobiography which was serialised in a Sunday newspaper.My Mum had a rather dim view of the man and his proclivities - this was early 1970's.
Which gets me wondering, how did a middle-aged woman out here in Australia know about someone like him, at that time (we left the UK in 1961).
When did his...activities become public knowledge? Anyone?
It included accounts of incidents like the infamous 'missing girl' episode, when Savile was asked by the police to look out for a teenage girl who'd wandered off.
He agreed to return her if she turned up on condition he could keep her overnight himself.
I read that as a young teenager myself and hated his guts from then on. Maybe your mother did too?
