As I said in a previous post, Olivia didn't stand much of a chance with her 'Song for Europe' in 1974. Abba made their debut into our lives that year with their song Waterloo ! Here they are in Waterloo Station shortly afterwards.
Here's a bit more info that I've picked up about the event online
Yes, that's Uncle Bulgaria, the Wombles being the guest act as it happens ! The date of the LIVE broadcast was Saturday 6th April a few hours after a recorded episode of Clunk Click. Here's a useful piece of information from a man who knows quite a bit about the industry as it happens
True enough, Savile was back presenting Top of the Pops on 2nd May 1974 introducing Abba singing Waterloo !
OK now, back to business ! I am determined to find out the dates of the recordings of the episodes of CC featuring Glitter and Freddie Starr. WHY ? because the media and press have
1) Led us to believe that the two were in the same place at the same time
2) The files that have been uploaded by the person/s who made an FOI request are conveniently lacking anything in connection with 1974. But, then I looked at one of the few published and made a remarkable discovery. You see, one of the few that mentions Cluck Click relates to the first series, that is 1973.
Now, look closely, because it just so happens that those dates are not broadcast dates but recording dates. Let me show you the calender for 1973
2nd May etc etc are Wednesday nights guys and gals. Now, we don't have a similar chit for 1974 but we can take from this that there was ONE recording per week regardless of when it aired.
More proof required ? The dates above relate to 8 attendances, and there were indeed, eight programs
Series 2 had 12 episodes starting 9th February 1974 (broadcast date). It was due to start the week before (2nd Feb) but Jim's already explained this in my last post. The recordings, I am reliably informed, were on a Thursday so, Freddie Starr's guest appearance should have been recorded Thursday 25th April 1974 and Gary Glitter's 14th March.
Now, according to the Guardian in February 2013, the 'BBC's timeline' states Hannah's tape includes Glitter AND Duncroft girls. BUT, that cannot be because her email suggests that whoever the celebrity is, Karin (R1) is one one side of him and R4 whom I know the identity of, is on the other !
And here's Glitter
They certainly could be Duncroft girls, a coloured girl had attended the school but the other is certainly NOT Karin Ward.
So what some of you might ask ? Me, I want facts as I'm sure does Freddie Starr who was after all placed in the same room as Glitter by Ward and then NOT, as it happens. Ward changed her story you see !
Then, in her local rag
So, what steps did ANYONE take to investigate the matter of who, what, where or whom ? None by the looks of things and why ? Because the schemer's had achieved what they wanted to achieve. They had created a scenario whereby a convicted sex offender appeared on the SAME show as an alleged sex offender (Savile). Anyone else who fell victim along the way was of NO concern to them ! You only have to read Meirion Jones' tweets to see the axe he's still grinding !
I haven't finished yet ! Oh no, I've still got Fiona's take on Karin's story to come. But I thought I'd share with you a little of what I know so far. The truth will come out and those who have misled and/or deliberately lied will face their Waterloo. Well, hopefully that is !
