The secret service. …
I had just watched the programme on Channel 4: The Ascent of Money. Niall Ferguson on the subject of the sub prime stuff. I wasn't that interested at that time of night but I was channel hopping and it caught my attention. He pointed out that with the US's New Deal came the racial divide in some? northern states. Red Lining he called it.
I was angered at that casual introduction of apartheid. Then the very next programme was a look back at the 60's: Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll: The 60s Revealed.
A one time must watch disk jockey/Talk show host Simon Dee hosted Sammy Davis Junior. Then he took him for a drink at the bar in the BBC studios. And the doorman wouldn't let the US star in.
I was gob-smacked.
