Broadmoor Hospital is opening its doors to the media for the first time ever
The late Jimmy Savile was a regular visitor to the hospital, where he worked as a volunteer and frequently met with Sutcliffe, who is serving 20 life sentences for the murders of 13 women and the attempted murders of seven others.
The Berkshire hospital is the home of Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe
Allegations had surfaced in the wake of a previous ITV documentary that Savile sexually abused inmates at the hospital, but a former worker said it would have been impossible as Savile would never have been left alone with patients.
The average stay at the hospital is between five and six years
Dr Amlan Basu, clinical director at Broadmoor, told ITV: “Patients that come here, they will have perpetrated often horrendous crimes but they are also victims and it’s very easy to see somebody as either the perpetrator or the victim.
"It’s much more difficult to understand that somebody might be both.”
The first episode of Broadmoor will be shown on ITV on Wednesday at 9pm.
