While we watched Crackerjack, etc etc, my mother spent a major part of the 1970s saying “horrible man”, “dreadful man”, whenever Gary Glitter or indeed Jimmy Savile appeared. Turns out she was the wisest among us. Can’t recall whether she had much against Freddie Starr. Probably would have.
I just couldn’t believe what passed for comedy in those days. Warped for life.
