Mark Ufland, whose half-sister Claire killed herself in 1971 after revelations about sexual abuse at Top of the Pops, has spoken about how details of the allegations recorded in Claire's diary were dismissed by the coroner and how she was labelled a "delusional fifteen year old girl."
Despite the story being reported by newspapers at the time and a police investigation in which Mr Ufland says Sir Jimmy Savile was questioned no further action was taken.
Claire met Sir Jimmy and other DJs through her work as a dancer on Top of the Pops.
Stanley Dorfman, who was a director on the Top of the Tops has told ITV News that there was a police investigation in to the safety of young girls at the studios while he was there, but that they found nothing and left and that the investigation had nothing to do with Jimmy Savile.
In a statement DJ Tony Blackburn said:
"All of us who worked at the BBC during the time of these heinous crimes owe it to the victims to speak to the police and the BBC Investigations Unit and help them in any way we can.
"Jimmy Savile was a master manipulator of the press and would do what he could to keep his image held high in the public conscience.
"It will be to the eternal regret of me and, I'm sure, so many of my BBC colleagues that he was allowed to get away with these monstrous acts."
In a statement Mr Blackburn said:
I am disgusted beyond words at the vile, despicable actions of Jimmy Savile.
As the father of a 15-year-old daughter myself, I can only imagine the pain that the young women, men and their families have lived with over the decades.
I have nothing but admiration for the bravery they have shown in living with this pain and with which they are now able to come forward and speak about what went on.
Whilst it is a tragedy that Jimmy Savile is not alive to face the justice that he deserves to face, I only hope that the victims are able to get some comfort from the fact that their stories are now being heard and believed
Mr Blackburn said he had never viewed Savile as a friend, saying:
He was not a nice man, despite how the public viewed him at the peak of his success.
There were always rumours circulating about him, the problem at the time was that rumour was always hard to translate in to fact.
A senior member of staff at the BBC has revealed he questioned Savile over rumours about his private life more than 20 years ago.
Derek Chinnery, who as Radio 1 controller from 1978 to 1985 was Savile's boss, admitted that he quizzed the presenter directly about the rumours of suspected abuse.
Mr Chinnery told BBC Radio 4's Broadcasting House:
I asked, 'what's all this, these rumours we hear about you Jimmy?'
"And he said, 'that's all nonsense'. There was no reason to disbelieve (Savile).
It's easy now to say how could you just believe him just like that.
He was the sort of man that attracted rumours, after all, because he was single, he was always on the move, he was always going around the country.
Several of Sir Jimmy Savile's alleged victims are considering taking legal action against the Department of Health (DoH) and the BBC, a lawyer has told ITV News.
Liz Dux, who is acting for the alleged victims said such action could be taken on the grounds of "vicarious liability".
A spokeswoman for Ken Clarke said that as he only became health secretary in July 1988, Jimmy Savile's appointment to the role at Broadmoor may have been instigated by someone else.
Former BBC Governor Baroness Neville-Jones has told ITV News that, "we must see what the facts are" before any of the alleged victims take legal action against the Corporation.
A Department of Health spokesperson said:
We will investigate the Department of Health's conduct in apparently appointing Savile to this role. Although the framework for child protection and safeguarding for Broadmoor and other Special Hospital patients changed radically in 1999, we of course want to establish the circumstances and see if any lessons can be learned.
In hindsight he should very obviously not have been appointed. Had anyone involved in the appointment been aware of allegations of abuse against Savile, we would not have expected him to have been appointed.
