The Savile Legacy

How long before they start making movies about Jimmy Savile? What a great role it is, by the way. Actors are going to be queuing up to play him.

The further we move away from him the bigger he's going to loom. No other figure of the period tells us so much about ourselves. 

The sleaziness of our morals, the tawdriness of our culture, the corruption of our politics.  

Will historians of the future be talking about the Era of Savile, the Age of Savile, the Savile Years. You know, I think they will.
