The breaking news of Sir James ‘Jimmy’ Wilson Vincent Savile, OBE, KCSG an English disc jockey, television presenter, media personality and charity fundraiser exposed as a paedophile child molester ‘apparently’ sent shock waves through the so called ‘British’ Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). However, once the word was out the story seems to be evolving.
Scotland Yard is leading the current investigation into accusations of abuse by the deceased former BBC DJ and presenter Savile, which was around 300 victims but has risen by 150 only recently. This is startlingly familiar to earlier British police investigations in the 1990’s. For example operation Ore was an investigation officially began in 1999 using information received from US law enforcement.
It was intended to prosecute thousands of users of a website reportedly featuring child pornography although British police already had a project in operation named Arundel which blended into operation Ore and later extended to operation Radium.
