There's going to literally be nothing left in the BBC's archives.
Can't see him doing porridge given his age, like.
Or the fat, wordy bloke of It's a Knockout, depending on your tastes.
he also used to present It's A Knockout back in the 70s
Features people wielding giant uncontrollable hands. Unfortunate as hell. Like you say that's off the archive list
Who's next? Rolf Harris..?
I'm gonna go watch that dog driving a car until I forget this ever happened.
do you think there is a celebrity who is sufficiently influential for their work to continue to be broadcast, even if they were convicted as part of "savile and others"?
something about libel and defamation
One of the founding 'fathers' of the Birmingham School, in fact.
I think the flood gates have opened
My they're a forgiving bunch!
Not really the thread for making jokes, I guess.
Just googled Rolf Harris. I pulled that name out of the air as an example of a star from my childhood who was squeaky clean. Please don't let that be true as well
the entire Commonwealth would collapse if such a thing were proven
On the 6am this morning it was barely mentioned. Surely they have learned their lesson with what happened with Savile
all these revelations that keep on coming, it's really making me question if we are all just total animals really. Someone gets into a position where they can get away with being an animal, and they just turn into an animal.
is everyone just a "bad'' person?
ANIMAL ANIMAL ANIMAL
Yes - it is horrible, but there are still more good people than scumbags
^NOT THIS PERSON. The radio and former-TV presenter
probably not the thread for it, but i don't think i really believe in the idea of good people and bad people. I think i'm more inclined to believe that we are naturally "bad''
Original Sin, nature v nurture etc.
For the record, I take the opposite view to yours
Maybe even watch it if it was on a bloopers style reel from one of his documentaries.
only a matter of time
We had a guy sent to a probation hostel on his release from prison who was the wrong side of 85. Quite a few geriatric sex offenders getting custodial sentences, often for offences they carried out decades ago.
Max Clifford's been arrested by the Savile inquiry police
his sleeves must be full of cards
That brings a new dimension to things
If he has to take the rap then he might empty the skeletons out of all sorts of cupboards.
but my second thought was maybe they just wanted to arrest him so they can question him about all the shit he has on numerous celebs
could be both
somehow gets caught up in all this. He's about the right age.
Not just if you want a chat.
Unless it was on withholding evidence, but bbc is reporting sexual offenses.
and I have never seen such joy on peoples faces before. It was glorious.
i liked his excuse for his groping which was basically it was the 1960s it was a different era you wouldn't understand, if it happened yes I would get arrested but it wasn't so there... was groping really just accepted then? Was the 1960s/70s just a big gropefest?
I wondered why he moved to the States
he was quite a loved personality, and very good at what he did, so will he be painted out to be worse than Hitlet (like Savile), or completely let off with his misdemeanours (like Peel)?
rape an ape.
Does hosting It's a Knockout and over annunciating the football scores count as enough power to corrupt a man?
You're mistaking him for Paul Daniels.
