ITV is to broadcast a second Exposure documentary about the ongoing sexual abuse scandal involving Jimmy Savile.
The first documentary Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile, which brought the scale of the alleged allegations against the late Top Of The Pops presenter to light only aired a matter of weeks ago, but now ITV Studios are once again working with journalist Mark Williams-Thomas on a follow-up programme.
Broadcast reports that the second documentary will focus on further allegations of sexual abuse that have since emerged against Savile, while the police investigation looks at claims that he abused around 300 people over a period of 40 years. However, it is unlikely to look into the separate investigation being conducted by the BBC.
Of the documentary an insider revealed that it will “pull together everything we have found”, and is expected to air in November. Tom Stone will produce the follow-up programme alongside Alexander Gardiner.
An audience of 2.2 million (23.94%) tuned into the first Exposure documentary while 5 million viewers watched a BBC Panorama special centring around the corporation’s handling of the scandal.
Savile’s estate had previously denied access to BBC clips of the late star, but are said to have lifted the ban for the second show if the BBC grant permission.
