The BBC Collection
In recent times, the amateur citizen investigative-journalism of the Real Whitby CORRUPTION BUSTERS team (TIM HICKS, NIGEL WARD and TIM THORNE – supported by a growing number of researchers, analysts and informants) – has drawn the attention of the country’s pre-eminent broadcaster – the BBC.
In the confident expectation of continuing in this fraternal collaboration, Real Whitby presents a growing video gallery of clips from the BBC.
Following a similar format to our page Real Whitby: The ‘PRIVATE EYE’ Collection, the BBC clips are presented in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent addition will always appear at the top of this page.
oo3 – BBC “Look North” – 12th May 2014.
Curiuosly, both the BBC “Look North” and the Scarborough News video coverage of the Scarborough Borough Council meeting on 12th May 2104 – when former Scarborough Councilor, mayor and Alderman Peter JACONELLI’s civic honours were revoked in recognition of his life-long predatory paedophilia – have been removed from their respective web-sites. Fortunately, the “Look North” coverage is presently available here. (Unfortunately, the diametrically opposing statements in Council of Councillor Mike WARD and Councillor Bill CHATT are not included. However the full transcript of Councillor Mike WARD’s statement can be found here).
002 – BBC “Look North” – 4th April 2014.
A meticulous investigation by Tim HICKS over the past eighteen months finally culminated, after four previous North Yorkshire Police, in an internal referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commissioner (IPCC) into North Yorkshire Police and its serial failures in its conduct of the Jimmy SAVILE and Peter JACONELLI paedophilia investigations. Many observers opine that this places Scarborough Borough Council Leader Councillor Tom FOX – who served with the North Yorkshire Police through more than two decades of the SAVILE/JACONELLI years, up until his retirement with the rank of Chief Inspector commanding the Scarborough Police – in an untenable position.
001 – BBC “Inside Out” (North East & Cumbria”) – 10th February 2014.
Following a nine-month long in-depth BBC ‘legal eagle’ scrutiny of the numerous Real Whitby reports on evidence of corruption in North Yorkshire local authorities, on Monday 10th February 2014 BBC North East & Cumbria broadcast a much-viewed episode of their award-winning investigative documentary series “Inside Out”, presented by award-winning Chris JACKSON.
