Fresh controversy continues to dog the BBC when Edna Sand (age 130), a senior producer from Radio One, admitted to Newsnight that she saw DJs 'playing records' back in the 70s.
Here is the transcript of tonight's Broadcast
NN: Edna, what do you remember of the culture of Radio 1 back then?
ES: Well, when I joined Radio 1 back in the day it was a very hard working and honest place to be. Honest in sense that we had 24 hour sex parties and that was it. Nothing more. Looking back now I suppose I was very naive.
NN: And when did you first suspect there was something 'darker' happening?
ES: October 5th 1971. That day I was in what we called 'the studio'. I was busy being groped at the time when I noticed the DJs hand opening a draw and he pulled out a ...
NN: Go on
NN: Pulled out a...
ES: ...a 'thingy'.
NN: What did he do with this 'thingy'?
ES: He asked me to touch it. I didn't know what it was as I'd never seen one before. At first I thought it was a sex toy. Then he told me it was a 'recud'
NN: Don't you mean record?
ES: No. It was the culture for DJs to effect an American pronunciation so he called it a 'recud'. The next thing I knew he put the 'recud' onto a turntable and played it. Over the airwaves.
NN: How did you feel about that?
ES: I felt dirty. Used. Defiled. As did the nation.
NN: Why was that?
ES: It was Shangalang.
NN: Did you think about reporting him?
ES: No-one would have believed me. Besides they were all at it. It was the culture back then. Saville was the worst.
NN: What was his favorite?
ES: 'Two little Boys'. And he enjoyed playing 'recuds' as well.
NN: And finally, can you drop us in it please?
ES: Yes. Lord Coe was one of the DJs. As was Lord Sugar.
Roll credits and pompous music.
