Sir Jimmy Savile was asked directly about abuse on Irish radio

Newstalk Radio's Orla Barry interviewed Sir Jimmy Savile in 2007 when he was asked directly about allegations of child abuse.

The Irish independent radio station recorded the interview shortly after the BBC broadcast a Louis Theroux documentary about Savile which had raised questions about his private life.
