“Be warned,” said another viewer.
“That new Rolf Harris two-part doc on ITVX now is a very tough watch. But the brave testimony from so many of his victims is compelling throughout.”
“Watching now and it’s profoundly disturbing,” said someone else.
“New documentary on @ITVX about #rolfharris is just skin crawling,” posted one viewer.
“Documentary about #rolfharris was really shocking,” said one viewer.
“Just shows that you can never go by how someone looks or the image they portray,” they added.
Another tweeted: “I was devastated to find out what my childhood hero was but, now l just feel angry.”
Harris, who is now 93, was once a household name thanks to his music and TV shows such as Rolf’s Cartoon Club.
