Not to be confused with multiple other films produced subsequently, also entitled "Conspiracy of Silence".
Conspiracy of Silence is a film by Tim Tate on the Franklin child prostitution ring that was made, paid for, legally cleared for release, but then suddenly pulled from the schedules just before broadcast. Tate has in part reconfirmed the allegations from the documentary and the surrounding circumstances related to the Franklin child prostitution scandal in a late 2015 interview.
“In 1993, a film crew from Yorkshire television in the U.K. led by producer Nick Grey and director Tim Tate went to Omaha, Nebraska in the U.S.A to make a documentary about an alleged paedophile ring.
Funded by the Discovery Channel in the U.S.A. their proposed film would first be broadcast in the U.K. and Ireland as part of Yorkshire television’s documentary series: “First Tuesday”. A U.S. broadcast would follow.
In Omaha the film crew discovered the machinations of a vast operation functioning throughout the country providing children to the wealthy and the political establishment for molestation, drug trafficking and blackmail. A year later in 1994 the documentary “Conspiracy of Silence” was to air in the U.K. But – During final editing with first broadcast approaching – The Discovery Channel inexplicably withdrew support and reimbursed Yorkshire television the half million dollars it cost to make.

Troy Boner, and possibly some others who feature in the film have later died in suspicious circumstances.
