Documentaries

WHEN IT first launched in 2010, Rebecca included television-style video documentaries.

These were prepared to the same standard as current affairs programmes on terrestrial channels.

Three were produced but only one remains.

This is Brothers in the Shadows, an examination of freemasonry and child abuse in North Wales.

This shocking documentary tells how a retired police detective and freemason became involved with a vicious group of men sexually abusing a young girl.

The video asks if the North Wales Police have done enough to try and catch the freemason who introduced the former detective to the ring.

The other two programmes have, sadly, been withdrawn after legal action by ITV Wales.

Both videos included footage which belonged to ITV Wales but which the channel had never broadcast.

(See the article ITV Bid To Gag Rebecca Television for more information.)

The first to be attacked was called Hidden Agenda, an exposé of Rhodri Williams, the Welsh head of broadcasting watchdog Ofcom.

POACHER TURNED GAMEKEEPER Rhodri Williams started his public career in 1996 when he was appointed a member of the Welsh Language Board. In the period 1996-2004 he would take home a total of more than £180,000 in fees and pension contributions. Photo: Rebecca

He has a chequered career in Welsh media and has been accused of sabotage on no less than three occasions.

This was the programme ITV Wales was most concerned about.

Rebecca considers ITV Wales’ decision to be an act of censorship.

The channel did not insist on the withdrawal of the second programme, A Touch Of Frost, until Rebecca pointed out that it, too, contained unused material.

A Touch of Frost tells the story of a key witness who was prevented from giving important evidence at the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal chaired by the late Sir Ronald Waterhouse.

After this setback — and because the videos proved to be too expensive to produce —  Rebecca ended its television activities …

Rebecca is independent, does not accept advertising or sponsorship and depends on supporters to cover some of its costs.

It runs at a loss.
