BBC Release Redacted Pollard Review
The redacted transcripts of the Beeb’s Savile inquiry can be read here. The black pen is particularly noticeable over Paxo’s evidence…
UPDATE: Here are the top lines:
- Paxman says it was “common gossip” at the BBC that Savile liked young girls
- Jim’ll Fix It special suggested as “homage” to Savile, and “Christmas treat”, in October 2011. Entwistle described it as a “great idea”.
- 8 out of 19 pages of Paxman’s evidence redacted.
- Entwistle nicknamed himself “Gold Commander”.
UPDATE: Big thanks to @Tent101 for producing searchable PDF versions of the Pollard files:
