My on my but the BBC must be sweating as Savilegate gets deeper and deeper. Did you read THIS in the Mail today?
“Screen legend Leonard Rossiter is the latest celebrity name to be embroiled in the sex scandal engulfing the BBC. The Rising Damp star, who died in 1984 aged 57, has been accused of performing a sex act as he watched three BBC staff trying to rape a male TV extra. An anonymous male accuser told The Sun the trio twice assaulted him at BBC Television Centre in West London when he was 18. He said Rossiter, who also starred in the much-loved series The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, watched the second 1960s attack. It is the latest scandal to hit the Corporation following the mountain of claims made about Sir Jimmy Savile. Today, the alleged victim branded the BBC a ‘cesspit of depravity’ as he recalled the assault, one of two he said he suffered at the TV Centre.
Hang on….Jonathan Dimbleby to the rescue!
“There has been a “disturbing relish” in the way critics have laid into the BBC over the Jimmy Savile sex abuse scandal, Jonathan Dimbleby has said. The broadcaster told the Times newspaper there has been a “witch-hunt” against the corporation, which had become “horribly out of proportion”. “The real focus should be on what Savile did wrong,” Mr Dimbleby said. It was “very distressing” that people were being “hounded” in a way that was “unwarranted” at the BBC, he added. Presenter Mr Dimbleby, who first worked at the BBC in the late 1960s said: “Paedophilia is a huge national problem that no one thought about 50 years ago and is now something that concerns everyone, but this has become a witch-hunt against the BBC.”
From my perspective, there is a disturbing culture within the BBC and a light seems to shining into it. showing us some very dark images, Mr Dimbleby.
