Most unwise I would have thought.
Stand up, or give up.

 Films get made about such folk and they get shown..That particular evil should stay buried with him, imo, but there'll be people who'll watch it for their own reasons.. I'll not be one of 'em..

The BBC must be desperate to improve their ratings...

Then they shouldn't've sold All Creatures Great and Small broadcasting to ITV.. Big Sunday evening earner audience-wise..

I dont think this drama is intended to glorify the subject - more to show up how these insidious tactics can creep along un-noticed and hide in plain sight! Just think of how many years he got away with it because he was a public figure!
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

Well, itís a programme I will not be watching. Itís easy to be wise after the event, but I never really liked the man, even before we learned what he had been up to

I understand the 'official' explanations for releasing it Jacq, I really do but it's still prurient stuff and many will watch for that sort of detail. There are many learned studies of such crimes and criminals, including case histories, freely available for anybody with an academic interest in the subject. Just saying I'll pass is all. :)

Let's hope the BBC also shows why and how 'the BBC' covered it up for so long

I'll leave others to decide that..and try to avoid reading of it..I'm not convinced for a moment that such things still and never ceased going on.. As evidenced by Andrewgate and the Weinstein papers....Mix beautiful, young ambitious girls/boys with mega-influential, rich older men and who can be honestly surprised when bad things happen.. for money, for a promised small movie part, maybe an apartment upgrade or a new car..Girls will be girls even when they're boys and always prepared to weep piteously when the consequences bite..

I'd lay odds that this will be covering up that cover up. :)
I'll rely on others to let me know though as I won't be watching it.

I'm not a great fan of trying people and finding them guilty without them having some representation. Still,I understand it pays the legal bills and gives any person a shot at pocketing some dosh. Trials are certainly costly,especially to prove your innocence.
Most recently showing my own shortcomings, I had found John Leslie guilty of fondling some unknown womans breasts. Never met the bloke or the woman. Strange days! I think the whole male caste of Coronation Street were arraigned and found guilty of some sexual shenanigins sometime back,but that at an unnecessary hearing the jury found them innocent.


As an opening to the forthcoming script,I'd have the first scene digging up JS corpse. Next scene,the bloke in the dock with the prosecution haranguing the corpse. Maybe we could have that spider broach judge who found the British people had voted wrong on the EU adjudicating. She's very independant and fair. Or the judge who found TB only second best to JCs innocence sitting ruling procedure. All high calibre and impartial.


Showtime and showtrials.

Better off continuing to highlight whatís going on in the here and now relating to these types of beasts.
