Here’s his Celebrity Radio Best Bts…..
Alex’s most high profile interview was with Sir Jimmy Savile. Belfield recorded the last in-depth 70 minute interview with Savile at his home in Leeds.
This rare and revealing interview was printed in the Sun the day after he died and broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Christmas Day 2011 as a celebration of his life. It was later repeated as an expose of ‘the darker side of Savile’.
In hindsight this interview reveals a lot about the true character of the Top Of The Pops and Jim’ll Fix It host. Reflecting on his death, Savile admitted “I won’t go to heaven, I’ve been tricky – I got away with it”.
It was revealed in 2012 that the BBC had deliberately covered up Savile’s true past as one of the most prolific paedophiles in history.
Here’s the complete unedited interview and audio from March 2011….
