Williams-Thomas to talk Jimmy Savile Exposé in Birmingham
"Investigative journalist Mark Williams-Thomas will face questions [not many of value, we wager] on his expose of Jimmy Savile – and the seismic consequences of this one explosive story which lifted the lid on shocking abuse and exploitation later this month. [really?]"
"The ITV correspondent will be interviewed by fellow investigating journalist Donal MacIntyre, a visiting professor at Birmingham City University.
An icon has been demonised, national institutions have been shaken to their very foundations and a massive police investigation launched – at times, even journalism itself has been put on trial. All this the direct result of one journalist – my colleague and fellow academic Mark Williams-Thomas.
When Mark first exposed the [alleged] truth behind Jimmy Savile, even he couldn’t have predicted the full aftermath that would follow. It was a brave decision to break the original story, which became one of the most important news revelations of a generation. - Donal MacIntyre"
