Auntie Beeb gets her knickers in a twist

The BBC has admitted the following gaffs….

  • Comic Relief – Friday 16 March 2007 on BBC One
    A caller was heard on air answering a question to win prizes belonging to a famous couple when in fact the caller was a member of the production team.
  • TMi – 16 September 2006 on BBC Two and CBBC
    A member of the production team posed as a member of the audience who had won a competition which was open to the public.
  • Sport Relief – 15 July 2006 on BBC One
    Viewers were led to believe that a member of the public had won a competition open to the public when it was a member of the crew.
  • Children in Need – 18 November 2005 on BBC One Scotland
    A fictitious competition winner was announced during a segment called Raven: The Island following technical problems.
  • The Liz Kershaw Show – 2005/6 on BBC 6 Music
    During pre-recorded programmes presented as live, listeners were led to believe genuine competitions were held when in fact there were no contests or prizes and all callers were production staff or their friends.
  • White Label – World Service until April 2006
    On more than once occasion a fake winner was announced when no winning entries had been received.

Cripes! I grew up on the BBC, and frankly I’m appalled. What’s going on there?
Dissing the Queen (please!!!! you don’t upset her…please…), lying on Blue Peter, and now this shit!

Get a grip guys! You’re a license funded organisation which I contribute directly for, and your franchise isn’t guaranteed. I’ve worked for the BBC, and I don’t want to see it end, but someone needs to take some names and kick some ass.

Mark Thompson, over to you!
