IMDB review: If you've ever wondered why conspiracy "theories" about Satanists and paedophiles running the Government are believed so widely, this 1994 documentary will help you understand. It is the story of Peter Righton (1926-2007), a notorious homosexual paedophile who was protected by fellow members of his profession - both as a schoolmaster and then as a university lecturer whose bailiwick was child care and child protection.
The documentary makers have done an excellent job, rather than rely on innuendo and historical allegations, the latter of which are often unreliable or imaginary, they have dug out correspondence between Righton and his fellow paedophile Charles Napier, and even a home video of Napier actually grooming underage boys in Sweden where he had relocated after being banned from teaching here. Last year, Napier was given a 13 year sentence for historical sex offences against boys, and unlike the convictions of Rolf Harris, Max Clifford and even Gary Glitter, there is no question of this being any kind of miscarriage of justice.
Napier's conviction came twenty years after this documentary was first screened, which begs the question, what where the authorities doing in the meantime? Well, one of those authorities was Righton himself, who actually gave Napier a reference when he had the audacity to reapply for a teaching post in England.
There is a lot more in this documentary, but don't watch it unless you have a strong stomach or if you are easily outraged.
