Here's the first quote.

“He named a number of persons as having been involved in the Cook Report investigation who he said were aware of the assault, which he said had been recorded by a covert video device with which he had been issued.”

Mr Atkinson told how police interviewed members of the Cook Report team, who said they were unaware of the allegation. They had not seen a video showing abuse and none of them recalled Mr Clarke even being in the lobbyist’s office.

After Mr Fellows was arrested, he insisted the allegations were true, saying the Cook Report staff were too afraid of losing their jobs or “falling foul of the Establishment” to corroborate them, Mr Atkinson said.
This quote is from The Independent. My computer started playing up as soon as I started researching for this thread. It wont paste the link.

Now a quote from Wikipedia.

In 1994, The Cook Report worked in co-operation with The Guardian newspaper on the infamous cash for questions story and had filmed a lobbyist claiming that he ‘used MPs like taxis’ and paid them to ask questions in parliament on behalf of clients. The programme arranged a sting operation to see if this claim was justified, but by the end of the then current series filming was incomplete. The Guardian subsequently decided to cover the story. Since the story would have been dated by the time the programme was back on air nearly six months later, it was cancelled on a pragmatic basis. It was the only film out of the 130 produced which was cancelled in this way.
The programme in question was "...the only film out of 130 produced which was cancelled in this way." With appropriate excuses of course, as is the way.

So what do I know about The Cook Report?

In 1994 The Cook Report tried to set-up a friend of mine during a different 'investigation'. My friend was asked to meet a woman in a hotel room. When he saw the footage later he realised a camera had been hidden on top of the wardrobe. Unaware of the hidden camera he just assumed at the time that the woman was unpleasant with bizarre bad manners.

She repeatedly tried to coerce him into making a statement that could result in prosecution. He was very careful with his words. He would only say that the treatment he was trained to give could assist her body in fighting cancer. She wanted him to say he could cure cancer.

My friend administered this treatment to a young man I knew. It extended his life three weeks beyond what the doctors in the hospice had told us to expect. It is a viable therapy that helps people. The Cook Report wanted to diminish my friends ability to help people in this way.

At the end of the meeting the woman fanned out a wad of twenty pound notes in front of his face and encouraged him to take as much as he wanted for his consultation. After much badgering he reached out and took a single twenty saying, "This will cover my fuel costs, thank you." She was visibly annoyed by his lack of greed.

This is what I know about The Cook Report. The good work they did seems to have been a cover for the bad.

Ben Fellows needs our support and understanding.

He isn't likely to get any help from Roger Cook.

Ray Wyre: A crime consultant sex therapy expert on treatment for paedophiles, Wyre died in 2008.

Paedophilia expert Ray Wyre is himself accused of abusing boys in a care home
His name is also on the list of people accused of molesting youngsters, which is surprising considering he helped improve the lot of children vulnerable to sex abuse.

Wyre's work with TV reporter Roger Cook on child pornography led to it becoming a crime to possess images of child sex abuse in 1987. His death was called a "tragedy for law enforcement" by a senior police officer.

I haven't found much on this yet but it seems possible Roger and Ray may have been a couple of tricky characters.

seemed entertaining tv at the time in my younger naive years ... but always knew that cook looked shifty ..

I'm halfway through watching and old Cook Report now and the word that comes to mind is spellbinding.

Binding us to the narrative through clever use of music and juxtaposed imagery. Tricking us into believing their version. Editing of conversations is obvious with careful listening.

I knew a BBC producer who worked on a little kids programme. She was definitely troubled. It must be hard to do your best in an overall corrupt environment.
