Veteran disc jockey Dave Lee Travis was seen by his colleagues as a "gentleman" and far from the "sexual predator" he has been made out to be, his defence barrister has told his trial.
Presenting his closing speech, Stephen Vullo said that after hearing from dozens of people who worked with the former Top Of The Pops presenter during his 30-year career, there was "not one whisper out there of what he is now being accused of".
Travis, now 68, is on trial under his birth name David Griffin charged with indecently assaulting 10 women and sexually assaulting another in alleged incidents dating back to 1976 and the height of his fame.
He denies all the charges, which relate to allegations from when he was working as a BBC DJ, as a broadcaster with Classic Gold radio, while appearing on Top Of The Pops and when starring in panto.
Mr Vullo referred to three of Travis's former personal assistants, who all said they were shocked when they heard the claims and had never seen the former BBC presenter acting inappropriately.
He told jurors at London's Southwark Crown Court: "These three witnessed his behaviour on a daily basis, in all of the venues that you are being said or told he committed offences.
"They were with him throughout all these periods of time, witnessed his behaviour, and they missed it.
"Totally missed that they were working with a sexual predator.
"Or he wasn't and has never been a sexual predator, that's the other possibility."
Mr Vullo said, unlike in other trials, Travis's "good character is totally an issue in this case".
He went on: "The prosecution have thrown quite a lot of mud at the defendant in this case. But mud throwing is not evidence.
"It is not evidence capable of supporting or asserting that he has been a sexual predator for 40 years."
