How far and widespread does institutional child abuse really go in Britain? Following the Sir Jimmy Savile scandal, there was a floodgate of allegations against the disgraced entertainer. This had led to a number of high-profile people being accused, people spanning across the world of celebrity but perhaps more shocking, the world of politics and government.
Institutional pedophilia was consigned to the comments sections if the Internet, a place only thought of as conspiracy, wild rumors and unsubstantiated facts. But as the months and years have passed since Savile’s death in 2011, conspiracy theories have turned into probability. The sheer number of accusers and the allegations aimed at some government officials, MPs and the police have raised serious questions. Even the authorities have confirmed that Sir Cyril Smith was a child rapist and abuser.
But what about the victims, the people too scared to speak out and those that did, vilified as damaged people that can’t be trusted. The powerful celebrity climate of the 1970s and 80s and the lack of child protection seemed to be the perfect environment for calculated institutional pedophilia.
In this episode of InFocus, we travel across Britain speaking with child abuse survivors, family members and experts to find out what happened in Britain and how far the allegations really go.
