    UK - Operation Yewtree.BBC/Leonard Rossiter sex allegations

    According to the Mirror, 10 employees of the BBC will be quizzed during the Operation Yewtree investigation, over historical sex assault allegations involving the 'Rising Damp' TV star Leonard Rossiter, who died in 1984.

    'The first accuser, who described the BBC set as “a cesspit of depravity”, told how his fellow cast member confided in him when he found her in a distressed state in the West London studios just days after the alleged attacks on him.'

    The attack's alleged by an actor who worked on the show 'The year of the sex olympics' and was 18 at the time. Rossiter was an excited spectator to it, the man says.

    He says both he and another female actor were attacked (or at least 'something bad happened to her') and they reported it to BBC management. Alleges they were told to forget it or they'd never work for the BBC again.

    BBC did seem to have sex on the brain in the past. I've never come across employees who could 'see' sexual innuendo in a canteen ceiling before, but they did in theirs. Said the design looked like women's breasts. Not to me, it didn't.

    Ummm. No luck in finding images of that. More like a spaceship now, with all the refurb. Perhaps it wasn't the canteen ceiling but the bar...my memory is going.
