Paedophilia around Piccadilly -Part 2 The Johnny Go Home Story

It was the small hours of the morning on a frosty November morning. The film crew had been working all night on an urgent film. They left their cutting room in Wardour Street and literally tripped over two children asleep in a squalid Soho alleyway. They could not believe it. Was this modern Britain – young children sleeping on pavements in the capital? That was not acceptable. [1a]

Di Burgess was asked to research the question of runaway children in London. The stories were terrifying and gathered at considerable personal risk.  Yorkshire TV resolved to make Johnny Go Home. [1a]

Filming was almost finished when the hostel owner, Roger Gleaves, the “Bishop of Medway” was arrested, after a boy from the hostels was murdered.  The programme was extended to almost double as events drove the story. The film then had to wait to be shown until after the trials that followed the murder. [1a]

A dramatic last minute legal battle to stop the film being banned was won and it was finally able to be shown. [1a]

It was shown either side of the Ten O’clock News on 22 July 1975. The first part called the End of the Line and the Second The Murder of Billy Two Tone. [2] [3] [4]

It made a dramatic impact. John Willis said “The response to Johnny Go Home from the huge audience of 10 million viewers was intense shock”[21c].

Although I am writing this blog post on the programme I have not and cannot see the film. Despite its impact and its continued relevance to today, the film does not appear to be available. According to the BFI “That it is largely unknown by those not young enough to have seen it then is partly down to the simple fact that in the case of documentaries, even landmark television is rarely repeated ”  [4].

I bow to their knowledge and experience but is that really true in todays multi-channel environment desperate for content? That also does not explain its unavailability on video channels on the internet. Hopefully it will not only be shown again on television but also be made freely available for educational purposes in film making, for posterity but also as a part of Britains child abuse history. I have written to John Willis to ask his opinion [17].

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it [26]. If we do not know our history how can we possibly learn from our past- and this is particularly poignant in the field of child abuse where so much has been lost, deliberately destroyed, withheld, embargoed and covered up. This part of the jigsaw is vital, and what a quality piece by all accounts.

Nancy Banks Smith wrote in her review [7] “It is Dickens updated. Oliver Twist alive and ill and hanging about in Piccadilly.” “Swarms of questions arise like flies”. Visually and mentally shocking, the images were stark and evocative. It provoked people to probe more deeply into the question of child homelessness as well as the people that prey on them.

Polly Toynbee wrote that estimates of 30,000 children adrift in London were a conservative estimate. About 5,000 under 18s arrive at Londons railway stations each year with nowhere to go. To illustrate the extent of the violence in the hostels she said police had found over 40 different peoples blood spattered on the wall [5].

Ministers asked for a showing of the film the next day [7].  A debate was held in the House of Commons a week later on homelessness, albeit at 7.30 in the morning after an all night sitting [14].

Norman Fowler started for the Conservative opposition “Public concern has been aroused by the television programme entitled “Johnny Go Home” and by the newspaper reports following that film, and rightly so. What has been revealed is nothing less than a major scandal” …”We should give special priority to policy concerning children, and for very good reasons. The interests of children need our concern and protection. If we fail to give that protection, that omission cannot be easily corrected or repaired. Failure to deal adequately with the interests of children can have serious repercussions on adult lives.” [14]

He argued for better inspection- “Previously, there was the Children’s Inspectorate in the Home Office. Now, in the DHSS we have moved over to the advisory function. In many cases, that is right. But it should also be considered whether that advisory function by itself is adequate in all cases and whether there is not also a place for inspection. Inspections and inspectors can still guide and advise, but they can also check, and it is checking that was so desperately needed in this case.” [14]

He wanted a “full and detailed inquiry to be set up by the Government into policy in this area. It is my case that a full-scale inquiry would serve best the interests which this House should seek to protect. They are the interests of the children.”

Lynda Chalker echoed “the amazement already expressed that the 1973 Home Office circular about the man we have been discussing {the paedophile Roger Gleaves} was not sent to the DHSS offices or other agencies. It went only to borstals and approved schools. ” [14]

“The problem time and again is the lack of liaison between education, social services in the boroughs, the DHSS, the Home Department, and so on, in involving the people concerned with the problem.” …”We notice this time and again when we discuss children’s legislation, as the Minister will know”.

Michael Meacher, Under Secretary of State for Health and Social Security, replied “The public conscience has been stirred, and rightly so, by the vivid way in which the almost Dickensian existence of many runaway children in London was revealed by this film.” [14]

“My Department has funded a three-year research project to find out what happens to a sample of young people, not children, newly arrived in London, and is using some of the agencies which are trying to help those who are homeless.”

“The Department of the Environment recently agreed to sponsor a research study, under the auspices of Char, the campaign for the homeless and rootless, of what is known about the accommodation needs of homeless young people. My Department is in the middle of a similar study of what is known of the variety of counselling and advisory services, of which there is a great variety, and which have developed, and are still developing, help for young people with a great range of problems—personal, psychological and practical.” [14]

“My Department has written to the chief executives of Camden and Westminster welcoming the manner in which the authorities are now, approaching, the problem in their areas and seeking their co-operation in working out the further steps that need to be taken.”

“.. the Home Secretary has instituted a full internal inquiry to investigate what action was taken by the various departments of the Home Office and related services in connection with the Gleaves affair. We are mindful of the problem which the Hon. Gentleman has highlighted. We are seeking to find out exactly what happened and why there was not the dissemination of the information to other Departments. [14]

He did add “The provision of finance, at a time of great public expenditure constraints, will depend upon competition from other demands on the resources.”

And then added “But we shall look at the proposals very sympathetically and we shall seek to assist them so far as we can, given the constraints on manpower and finance.”

“I assure the House that we shall continue our efforts to find new methods, approaches and solutions to the ugly problems revealed in “Johnny Go Home”.” [14]

meacher and castleBarbara Castle was Secretary of State for Social Services and refused a public inquiry despite repeated requests over 3 weeks. [14] [9] The department replied that “working parties bringing in people were a better way of achieving results than a formal public committee of inquiry.” [9]

Roger Gleaves served only two years in jail from the original sentence of 4 years in 1975. He was also perhaps lucky to get away with a conspiracy to murder charge. However he was still offending against children 20 years later. This caused some questions over who was to blame, but Michael Meacher and Barbara Castle refused to comment [22].

Why did nobody stop this man?John Willis, producer and director of Johnny Go Home wrote- The response to Johnny Go Home from the huge audience of 10 million viewers was intense shock. As a result the government acted and a string of initiatives emerged. They included new hostels, a Soho health clinic for the homeless and funding for advisory organisations both at London railway stations and in Scotland where many runaways come from. But more than 20 years later Gleaves was still a menace to society. [21c]

John Willis blamed Gleaves aiming at the soft underbelly of society.

john willisHe may be right,  but that is not enough. It has to happen alongside the natural incompetence of a centralised government elite which is remote from the people. But also there is no doubt that there an unwillingness amongst many politicians of all parties to rid their parties of paedophiles.

In fact paedophilia is one reason they are in democratic power- to act as the blackmailed paedophilic lapdogs of those who exercise the dominant undemocratic powers that unfortunately exist in our society.

This manifests itself as a continually repeated structural systemic unwillingness to deal with paedophiles in society in any meaningful way. In fact it condones them.

Exactly what the reports showed is at present unclear, as it what measures were implemented.

To sum up, Meacher announced these actions.

1. Department for Health and Social Security 3 year research project on young people newly arrived in London.

2. Department of Environment sponsored a research study with CHAR re accommodation needs of young people.

3. DHSS study of Counselling and Advisory Services on what help for young people—personal, psychological and practical.”

4. DHSS Cooperation with Camden and Westminster seeking their co-operation in working out the further steps that need to be taken.

5. “The Home Secretary instituted a full internal inquiry to investigate what action was taken by the various departments of the Home Office and related services in connection with the Gleaves affair. We are seeking to find out exactly what happened and why there was not the dissemination of the information to other Departments.”

6. In Feb 1976 Feb Meacher announced a Government working party to examine lessons learnt from Gleaves case. 6 months later it reported [22]

The only account I presently have of the report of the working party is that it recommended that police should disclose details of convictions of anyone who was involved in hostel work to prevent repeat a repeat of the Gleaves case. Local Authorities should appoint a senior officer to handle background information, on who applies for jobs with council or voluntary bodies, for dealing with runaways. [22]

We shall hopefully see what the other reports said and what actions were taken. However on the one report we do know, the government declared that whilst the recommendations were desirable,  that economic restraints made them impossible to introduce. [22]

Using the governments logic, if they did not do this then the Gleaves case would be repeated.

It was repeated– at a far greater cost financially, socially,in the quality of childrens lives, as well as the ultimate cost of the childrens life themselves.  All for the sake of the financial small cost of prevention. Gleaves lifetime paedophilia is covered in Paedophilia around Piccadilly Part 3 -Profile of a Paedophile – Roger Gleaves. [45]

The politicians really do not seem to care- and when asked for a comment do not even bother to deign to reply.

Dianna Burgess had carried out most of the research for the film. She found that there were NO official bodies to help look after the runaway youngsters and was scathing about the unofficial ones. [16]

After publication of this blog post Mr. Meacher will be asked the findings of the various reports, and what actions were carried out. The relevant departments will receive Freedom of Information requests as to what was decided and carried out.

What actions did the Police take? There was a high profile trial in the September, known as Playland trial after the amusement arcade where the boys were picked up at the edge of Piccadilly Circus .  See Paedophilia around Piccadilly Part 4 Playland Trial and Cover Up [51]

It is vital that we know what happened so that we can determine what works. If we do not we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. For the sake of our children we must act.

Johnny Go Home did not happen in isolation, future blogs in this series will show that this was just part of decades of Dilly Boys. The life of Roger Gleaves the paedophile is examined more closely in Paedophilia around Piccadilly Part 3 Profile of Paedophile Roger Gleaves [45].

Johnny Go Home was the start of successful careers for both Michael Deakin and John Willis. The producer and director of Johnny Go Home, John Willis recently served as BAFTA Chairman has a write up here [23], and Michael Deakin here [10].

I appeal to those who can make the decision, please could be Johnny Go Home be made available free to all. It is too important not to be. Similarly for the little known follow up Whatever Happened to Johny Go Home [6]. People before Profit. Children before Cash.

Johnny Go Home has also made its way into popular culture of which these a couple of examples.

Lyrics

Nobody knows the trouble you feel
Nobody cares, the feeling is real

Johnny, we’re sorry, won’t you come on home
We worry, won’t you come on
What is wrong in my life
That I must get drunk every night
Johnny, we’re sorry

Use the phone, call your mom
She’s missing you badly, missing her son
Who do you know, where will you stay
Big city life is not what they say

Johnny, we’re sorry, won’t you come on home
We worry, won’t you come on
What is wrong in my life
That I must get drunk every night
Johnny, we’re sorry

You’d better go, everything’s closed
Can’t find a room, money’s all blown
Nowhere to sleep, out in the cold
Nothing to eat, nowhere to go

Johnny, we’re sorry, won’t you come on home
We worry, won’t you come on
What is wrong in my life
That I must get drunk every night
Johnny (Johnny), we’re sorry, won’t you come on home
We worry, won’t you come on home
Johnny, won’t you come on home

I have been told that “Street Kids” was on the BBC in 1988 on a similar theme which seems to have become lost. “As in the documentary a boy called Joey from Liverpool is approached by an MP and asked for sex for money. Alot of the kids in this documentary were very young living around the West End at this time, it was like something from a Dickens novel.” Thank you to the person who told me this and if anyone has any more information or has a copy or links to a video, I would be grateful for the information.
