I think I got a bit confused here, as there’s been loads of media rhetoric about the Steve Coogan-led dramatisation of the Savile story: and that’s what I was interested in. It’s probably no coincidence therefore that Netflix have been pimping out this documentary to capitalise on the story’s current profile. Once started, of course, it’s a gritty and grim piece of history that’s hard to stop watching (in horror). The sad thing is that because of the historical nature of what went on it’s noble to *hope* that it never happens again, but other than the sheer scale of it I wouldn’t be surprised if stories keep coming out for a good few years yet. Humans really can be complete arseholes, can’t they?
