Matters arising

1. Unfortunate BBC Ulster reading of Jimmy Savile related text, and apology http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9yJUOdVyUc
2. The caller who thinks deer crossing signs should be put somewhere less dangerous http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI8UPHMzZm8
3. The origin of the '2 wetsuit job' http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/crime/dead-reverends-rubber-fetish
4. Ben Aaronovitch's blog post about things that would have been influences had he not written his book first
I cannot find the link on the forum I found with the post claiming that the poster had seen Ted Heath turn into a lizard before her (it was a she I think). i.e. someone other than David Icke claiming to have seen Heath turn into a lizard.

[ETA - the London Review of Books article about BBC - ahem - culture in the wake of the Savile stuff http://media.lrb.co.uk/2012-10-27-andrew-ohagan-light-entertainment.html - contains Uncle Mac (I think we may have had some old Uncle Mac records when I was little, maybe from my brother's era?) and Gilbert Harding:
"On one occasion the writer was taken from school to visit Harding for tea (the headmaster was dazzled), whereupon Harding insisted the boy take a bath and scrub himself with soap while the gameshow veteran sat watching him. "]
