National Treasure
October 17th, 2012 - 12:11 pm

It’s been a bad week for the respectable institutions all around the world. Bill Keller, formerly an editor at the New York Times described the child-molestation scandal engulfing the BBC.
Quote:
Perhaps you’ve had your fill of these sordid accounts — the celebrity gropers, the pedophile priests, the fondling in the locker room shower, the witnesses who look the other way. But Savile’s case is worth mulling, if only because the institution in which his serial child abuse took place is one of the most respected media organizations in the world, a putative shrine to truth and accountability: the BBC. …

To appreciate Jimmy Savile’s place in English culture, imagine a combination of Dick Clark of “American Bandstand” and Jerry Lewis, maestro of the muscular dystrophy telethon. Savile was the longest-serving host of the immensely popular BBC music show “Top of the Pops,” and the star of another long-running show called “Jim’ll Fix It,” in which he pulled strings to grant the wishes of supplicants, mostly children. … He was Sir Jimmy, confidant — or at least photo-op accessory — of royals, prime ministers, even Beatles.
And now Savile turns out to have been a creep.

I was mulling over starting a thread about this for the last few weeks. Figured since only me, EU and Frons would have a fucking clue who Jimmy Savile was it wasn't worth it. To put it in some perspective it is like finding out the Pope had his hand down some altar boys pants whilst the rest of the Vatican looked on and kept their mouths shut about it.

It is funny how since the guy is dead so many people are coming forward and saying "oh yeah we knew he was a pedo". The old boy network at Auntie Beeb must be more scary than the Tory Whips.

Mark E Smith was never fooled though...

Two hours! With four left wing kids!

I spent time at Nazi Fortress

Much discussion in room C-H-1-O-C-H-11

I did not understand why

I could not accept the fact

that I'd accepted the contract

Much discussion in this institution

Much discussion in boiled beef and carrots

Room C-H-1-O-C-H-2-O-11

It was so clear in the window eye

The brick outlined the blue sky

And I had to go round the gay graduates in the toilets

And Good King Harry was there (FUCKING JIMMY SAVILE)

Much discussion in room C-H-1-O-C-H-2-O-11

Much discussion in room C-H-1-O-C-H-2-O-11


Song from 1982. My bold. ;)

:lol:

I read somewhere that Jimmy Savile was on HIGNFY once and Paul Merton was making constant references to Sir Jim liking "green fruit". This back in the 90s, I think. The BBC didn't air it.

Not sure if this is BS rumour or not, but there it is. If so, pretty damning of the Beeb.

Good to see the BBC get another well deserved comeuppance.

Jimmy Saville giving tips on picking up young girls to teenage boys. From his 70's radio show "Saville's Travels"...



The squeals of the girl at the end are disturbing to say the least...

Ian Hislop may be an insufferably smug twat, but he is capable of occasional humour...
