From the teacher's notes

"(A) specially filmed documentary about the unusual world of the disc jockey Jimmy Savile."

"The enigma of Jimmy Savile is that for a man who can afford anything and who above all can afford not to have to work 5 days a week, he is most extraordinarily active. He uses the freedom his fame and wealth have brought him to devote his time and energy to those less fortunate. His diary is full from one month to another with charitable engagements up and down the country. These can vary between delivering church sermons or taking crippled children to the seaside, to judging beauty contests. But whatever it is he does, no payment is received."

"'Scene' spent two weeks with Savile and the film illustrates his own particularly personal view of life. There is no attempt to editorialise and the programme presents a report, not an exposé. It is left to the class to assess." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1971 p.4
