Where were you in 1977 ? Personally, I don't remember exactly where I was on every one of those 365 days, but, I'm sure that, had I been a hospital inpatient, it would be there on my records somewhere !
Yes, I'm afraid it's back to that story again Guys and Gals, you know the one where a 12 year old is raped in a hospital by a porter and it's not reported ever to anyone until earlier this year, and, even then, it's not to the Police but to a television company !
You see, this story has got me so incensed that I decided to don my best burrowing apparel and go check out a few FACTS ! The first one that took my fancy was that chart that the Savile Police released in January 2013, you know the one where they let us know where and when Jimmy's 'crimes' took place !
Well here it is again for your delight ! Now have a look at 1977
So that's a yellow line there - oh and it just happens to be 'London - BBC Centre' - allow yourselves a wry smile for that one friends !
So, could it really be that 'Celia' would hide away her story for another year or so, rather than contact the rather busy helpline !
Jimmy Savile was a very busy man in 1977. He was .... hosting Top of the Pops in April, May, June, November and December !
He was meeting the Queen in May in Edinburgh
More than 10,000 people flocked to the city’s Camperdown Park. And in Aberdeen, they were 20 deep on pavements to get a glimpse of the Monarch in the sunshine.
In Edinburgh, she attended a youth pageant at Meadowbank Stadium with Jimmy Savile, who reportedly “made her laugh”.
He was running up and down mountains in August
And earlier in the year !
He was presenting his third series of Fix it's !
As well as extra special episodes !
Febuary 1977 was a sad time in Jimmy's home town
On 5 February Sutcliffe attacked Irene Richardson, a Chapeltown sex worker, in Roundhay Park. Richardson was bludgeoned to death with a hammer. Once she was dead, he mutilated her corpse with a knife. Tyre tracks left near the murder scene resulted in a long list of possible suspect vehicles.
But I imagine that the street parties in Leeds in June will have been as happy as they were in other parts of the country !
1977: Queen celebrates Silver JubileeMore than one million people have lined the streets of London to watch the Royal Family on their way to St Paul's at the start of the Queen's Silver Jubilee celebrations
The BBC has this event occuring on the 7th June 1977. That would be a Tuesday by the way. See how accurate you can be if you just put your mind to it !
HAPPY DAYS INDEED !
