I'm not understanding all this outrage that Sir Cliff seems to have over the police raid at his house?

Yes, not pleasant viewing - particularly if you are innocent - but it's nothing new about the world's press reporting on such raids. Yes it happened to be filmed by the BBC but weren't they only just doing their job by doing so?

I'm not interested myself in 'celebrities' life's' but there are plenty who are - and I guess the raid was more interesting than most because many probably thought it was linked to all those Jimmy Saville type raids that were going on at the time - but why has he got his knickers in a twist with the BBC?

Surely his anger should be directed at the police who felt they had to raid the home - only to find nothing - and the police yet again for presumably tipping off the BBC as to the time the raid was taking place?

If there was no raid the BBC had nothing to report - but there was a raid and on a famous celebrity, so it would have made worldwide news if the BBC had not have been there in the first place

All the BBC did was to film it rather than to report it verbally with a picture of Cliff in the background as they did so - like I guess ITV and everybody else would.

Ok, maybe a shock for him to see it on the news whilst he was on his holiday - but what is the greatest shock - to see he's had a police raid on his house, or seeing TV pictures of them doing so? Surely the shock would be 'Christ, the police think I might be involved in all this Saville shit' and not 'I've been betrayed by the BBC because they are showing film of my house'?

I doubt Sir Cliff is short of a pound or two, and he's getting on and is famously celibate, so I can see him doing this to cash in or to protect his loved ones - so it seems it most really be that he's pissed with the BBC for filming a police raid - something you see on TV most nights anywhere in the world.

Why the drama? What am I missing?

What do you think?

Would Sir Bruce have done the same?

Did the BBC play any role in creating a story that caused the police to raid his house in the first place?

I don't think the police sit at home watching the telly waiting for leads to cases do you really?


If the BBC had found something they would have passed it on to the police and IF they thought there was something in it then they would have had to get appropriate approval first to mount a raid and search the premises.

So once again it comes back to the police leading all of this, even IF the BBC first came up with a few clues first.

Richard's beef should be with the police force, not the BBC, and that's the bit I can't understand as to why he's taking the BBC to court - to my mind they were only doing their job - reporting on a police raid.

If i was a copper working on Yewtree, Mr 'I'm still a virgin' would be one of the first names on the investigation list. But money talks so they didn't manage to nail him.

Pity the BBC weren't so rigorous about looking at their own house.

You can't deny Mistletoe & Wine is a classic.
