North Wales child abuse inquiry failed to hear important witness after gagging the media

The impression that the original inquiry was flawed is strengthened by the Rebecca website:
In 1997 journalists working for the HTV current affairs programme 'Wales This Week' were given a stark warning by the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal. 
If they broadcast newly discovered allegations of child abuse dating back nearly twenty years they risked being held in contempt of the Tribunal. 
The broadcasters removed the allegations. But having gagged the media, the Tribunal didn’t go on to interview the witness and never heard his testimony. 
The story of how the Tribunal suppressed an important piece of evidence has never been told.
Until now...

I am not able to embed the videos, but you can watch part 1 and part 2 of a film about this missing witness on Youtube. The end of part 2 is particularly interesting.
