This Funzing Experience:

In 2012, Jimmy Savile was finally revealed as the monster we now know him as. How did he evade capture for so long? How was he eventually found out? Could he have been caught by the authorities sooner? Meet the investigator who finally helped expose him, Mark Williams-Thomas, for this unrestricted talk, where we look into one of the most controversial cases of our time.

After years of rumour and hear say, in 2012 Mark William-Thomas’s investigative report for ITV finally exposed the late jimmy Savile as a predatory sex offender.

His dedication and tenacious approach to finally expose Savile has resulted in many other offenders being brought to just and a tidal wave change in public policies and public attitude.

In this no holds barred talk, Mark will give you the inside story around the steps which exposed the master manipulator, leading to the biggest media scandal & story in the last decade
