CFS Speaker Series: 'Television as testimony in documentaries about the Jimmy Savile case'

Description
Focusing on documentaries on the Jimmy Savile case, Professor Boyle thinks through tensions in the representation of victim testimony. In doing so, she explores the stakes in naming Savile as a paedophile, and how this shifts attention away from the “macho culture” to focus instead on failures in safeguarding and questions about celebrity, sexual morality and consent.
