Why BBC removed Savile’s Desert Islands Discs appearance from its archive
From the Greenslade Blog
“First they said they wouldn’t remove it from the archive: then they changed their corporate mind and expunged it. Why? Because listening to it might turn us plebs into paedophiles?”
The problem for the BBC, however, is that it is damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t. Clearly, the corporation cannot risk further criticism for failing to excise material that might have involved participants suffering from sexual assaults, or even inappropriate behaviour, by Savile.
