I used to read the Jimmy Savile thread on the D*v*d *ck* messageboard until I was banned for some reason* and they were all over him, Guernsey, Ted Heath, Lord Mountbatten, Dolphin Square, you name it. It was apparently all part of the same conspiracy.There was a program on BBC4 last week called storyville which was about the poor kids in Guernseys children's home.
It was a really interesting watch and especially about the politics there and how it affected the investigation.
I remember it all coming out at the time but I didn't realise that it was so long ago.
The bit when they thought they had discovered some kids bodies by the cadaver dogs. They thought they had found a piece of skull but it seemingly turned into a bit of coconut.
Hope this is the right place to put it but I thought it was worth mentioning and recommending watching.
There was a journalist who was interviewed and shocked me when he said that he was a Jimmy Saville spectic.
(One of my posts on'ere was quoted there, about Savile being a Bevin Boy in the war, conscripted to work digging coal while the regular miners were serving in the Forces. I'd heard him talking about it on t'wireless.)
A couple of years ago I was working with a Guernsey woman. She told me she and her younger brother had been in a care home there and it was a pretty dreadful experience. I hoped to gently pump her next time we met but we didn't bump into each other again.
