Question 2 - Sir Jimmy Saville & Broadmoor. I can't find any other reference to him 'running' Broadmoor. He was a porter there, but I can't find anywhere that will verify him running it. Could you share your source on this one?

The question was inspired by the 1989 documentary '40 Minutes: inside Broadmoor' where Jimmy Saville, the self-styled 'boss' of the high-security hospital, is heading a taskforce to set up a new therapeutic regime, and the programme shows him grappling with these and other dilemmas currently facing Broadmoor.
