Beginning of the end for the BBC?
Its (BBC) totally flat footed response to this, and its commercial enemies circling like sharks, lead me to believe.
There was at the very least negligence and a failure of duty of care by BBC managers at the time, and even plausibly some collusion with other BBC employee's over the crimes committed allegedly by JS.
Either way those who would dismantle the BBC have never had such an issue over which to attack it. if there is one thing the general public will never forgive its child abuse..
Having got that cynism out of the way the truth needs to be known, even at the expense of the BBC.
One thing where i would disagree with the article is over luis Theroux, his documentary with Savile completely failed to expose the man, or even a suspicion of what he was up to, the only moment in the whole thing that Jimmy allowed the act to slip was over his enforcer role when he was a nightclub manager, even then he painted himself as a protector of young women as i remember, all be it a volent one to any would be aggressor.
This guy ether fooled or intimidated everyone it would seem , including and not surprisingly his fellow creatives, egomaniacs, luvies at the BBC and the general public.
