The 1970's apparently ! Just eleven days after Exposure the following article appeared in the Times. You see, the 'net' was already widening in Yewtreeland. The corrupt were coming, and they weren't after individuals. They were coming after a BBC pop show. You guessed it !
Spot the yewtree suspects, guys and gals
Now, read the next paragraph and tell me if the following yarn sounds familiar
No Savile tale is without the mandatory BBC snitch who reveals some truly depraved goings on ! Sounds like they had a blast !
Names please ? Bear in mind, this is October 2012 and to date, we've only had one TOTP presenter in the dock and NO 'pop stars' at all.
Up next another liar aka a 'source' who relates this corker
Fortunately, Polly is still around and was able to scotch this one
Does this person still work for the BBC ? It will be interesting to compare these tales to what's said to the Dame, when her report is done with.
But, let's stick with facts for a while shall we ? That first tale via Saunders, appears suspiciously similar to the McAlpine dancer case in 1971. The telegraph a few days earlier, had it's own version of the events. There were 'clues' that the BBC should have picked up back then. Savile the 'master manipulator' should not have 'evaded exposure'
Fleet Street's master manipulators fail to acknowledge the irony of the fact that Murdoch's own had 'investigated' these and other claims themselves. Had Jimmy Savile managed to 'manipulate' them too ?
How many people would Jimmy have had to 'manipulate' to keep such claims about HIM, quiet ? Well, first there's Dorfman the producer of Top of the Pops
The News of the World
Er, the above from the Daily Mirror April 1971 by the way !
The Daily Express
The BBC's complaints department
In short, everyone involved with Savile at the BBC over 4o years. Doesn't make sense does it ?
But, among the hundreds of FOI (freedom of information) requests that have sapped the BBC resources since October 2012, one sort of stands out a bit for me ! I cannot recall HOW I came across this. I do know I was looking into claims made by Rodney Collins. There is one FOI in there that refers to Collins's claims but I didn't copy it and cannot locate it now (hint Misa and Bandini)
Now, who I wonder is Mr S D Williams ?
Get burrowing pals !
