If it is true that all the BBC were interested in was whether or not sex allegations would be published about Mr Savile, in the national press, suggests a very murky culture that existed. It is alledged that the press didn’t publish the story because Savile was popular and did an enormous work for charity. Gary Glitter has now been linked with Savile backstage at Top of the Pops, and Paul Gambaccini has incinuated that everybody knew what was going on but nobody dare mention it.
Top of the pops 2 will be interesting if Jonathon King & Jimi Saville are introducing a Gary Glitter track.
Heads should fucking roll – what else is being covered up. What other information do the press hold that links people to abhorrent crimes. Why were / are things like this covered up?
