Including the Guardian Newspaper that is
Shame on us all for not, being 'alarmed' by the contents of newspaper articles and interviews. What were we all thinking ?
The dame herself was alive and resident in this country during the 'Great British Public's' long love affair with Jimmy Savile. I mean, she didn't just emerge from a spaceship in 2012 did she ?
Enough of all that guys, I've got a surprise for you. A great big hat's off to members of our 'great British public' for this
Blimey these lovely chaps have only gone and added sound to what was a muted episode dated 25/2/1971 presented of course by our Jimmy ! It's very interesting on a number of levels. One being this
Now, watch the whole thing and see what's actually happening in that little enclave gathered about Jimmy. He's obviously very excited about his forthcoming 'stroll' from John O Groats despite the fact the girls won't be there cos they are playing football
Jimmy tells us about his plans for the weekend, for Sunday anyway "Don't forget John O' Groats, haff past three Sunday" He's talking about the start of the first of his mammoth nationwide charity walks. Many folk get the route the wrong way round, but no, thanks to Jimmy, we know where he started, where he finished, and, thanks to me and our enemies with their FOI requests, we also know what he did along the way ! Starting with the Nationwide televison crew
Being interviewed in Scotland by someone called Alistair Campbell
Various recordings of his radio show along the way
So, that's the whole of March 1971 taken care of guys and gals. I'm very grateful to Chris for sending me the link to this episode of Top of the Pops. I'll leave you to watch it and make your own mind up !
