The Aftermyth of Savile…

…somewhere in the B.B.C.

George Entwistle, director general of the B.B.C. waits for Peter Rippon programme editor who stopped the Newsnight broadcast into Jimmy Savile.

GE: Rippon, sorry to drag you away from the fun old boy.

PR: That’s all right sir.

GE: Savile’s not going very well you know.

PR: Oh my god

GE: Yes, two down and the ball’s in the enemy court.

GE: Enquiries a psychological thing Rippon, like a game of football

PR: Yes sir.

GE: You know how in a game of football 10 men often play better than 11.

PE: Yes sir

GE: Rippon, we’re asking you to be that one man.

PR: Sir.

GE: Rippon, I want you to lay down your career. We need a futile gesture at this stage. It’ll raise the whole tone of the B.B.C.

GE: Get in your car Rippon, pop over to the select committee, take a shufty, don’t come back.

PR: Right you are sir.

GE: Goodbye Rippon, god I wish I was going too.

PE: Goodbye sir, or is it au revoir?

GE: No Rippon.
