The removal of Jimmy Savile's headstone is symbolic of the public mood and the appropriate gesture to fellow deceased in neighbouring plots.
Now I'm not downplaying these assaults, they are serious and distressing and should never be tolerated. But today it is 2012, the world is a vastly different place from the 80's. As much as we like to pretend, a great many mixed workplaces in those days were like a poorly written seventies sitcom full of lecherous men with wandering hands at Christmas parties and battle axe women who touched up young apprentices.
It used to be that in order to get a job on the telly or in radio you had to speak the Queen's English. Now it seems Received Pronunciation is solely reserved for Radio 4. It wasn't always this way.
We've swapped urbane, well-briefed and articulate interlocutors like Clare Balding, John Inverdale and Michael Johnson for slack-jawed rubes who struggle to recall the number of players fielded by a team and say things like "for me, it's a game of two halves and at the end of the day the lad give 'undred and ten percent in and araand the box."
A lot of people will find what I have written here quite unusual and maybe unreal. But when you look at all the sigtings reports, images, eye witness accounts, and inside information from people who worked within military and black ops projects, things become a lot clearer.
Rushdie told the World Service that "the most frightening change" that he saw in Pakistan was that the mass of the people seemed to have given up on the "very moderate" religious beliefs that they used to hold.
Newsjack, the topical sketch show now in its seventh series, is back on the air this month and its open format means aspiring writers like me and you - yes, you over there, with a joke in your heart and Wotsit crumbs in your beard - can submit jokes or sketches with the possibility of being broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra.
The debate around the fall of the print media industry has been raging for some time now. TV and radio threw the first punches and the internet went for the knockout blow. Closings and layoffs are now a regular occurrence and it is generally accepted that the news business has struggled to capitalise on the rise of digital.
In my work as a Cognitive Hypnotherapist I see so many people in states of acute anxiety, depression and stress. One of the things that really makes a difference (and research widely supports this) is getting the unconscious mind to focus on the positives around us.
Last night I had the pleasure of attending the BAFTA Annual Television Lecture. The guest speaker, Armando Iannucci the creator of The Thick Of It and Veep, gave a lecture entilted 'Fight, fight, figt' which I think accurately sums up the situation that broadcasters now find themselves in.
There was a BBC Newsnight report at the start of the Paralympics on the current state of eugenics, an idea that has hardly dared speak its name since Hitler embraced it and used it to justify the mass killing of all hundreds of thousands of disabled people.
When the first BBC transmitter, known as 2LO, crackled into life on 14 November 1922, few could have guessed the impact that radio would have on our world. To mark the 90th anniversary, the BBC is attempting an ambitious first, bringing together around 60 of our stations (network, local, national and international) for a single remarkable moment - a three-minute piece of history broadcast simultaneously around the UK and the world. At its heart will be an idea that explains radio's success: listening to each other. So if you could talk to the audience of the future, people listening 90 years from today, what would you say?
I believe it is likely that a majority of fans will be consuming the Rio Olympic coverage on their phones. If you remember how the BBC Olympic app worked, allowing sports fans to select news about their team only or even a particular athlete - now overlay this with the ability to get a live feed from all sports all the time and that is probably what normal will look like in 2016.
From a position of nigh-invisibility, for about 5 minutes in the 90s to be Asian was almost cool. I think as Citizen Khan has reminded us, we've come back down to earth since then, some would say with a bump that still resounds.
For many of us living in the West the word poverty normally conjures up images of far flung lands in sub-Saharan Africa or Asia. Often it is images of malnourished children with naked torsos and indented ribcages in drought-ridden surroundings.
Signing a petition is not a silver bullet for challenging those in power. But building movements of people is certainly a huge part of it. And what's even more important at a time when people are almost entirely sceptical of politics and politicians, is that it's putting power in the hands of the people - and that's what real change is all about.
