    Britain on the Fiddle

    I can't remember seeing anything like this before.

    The background seems to be that a court has slammed the behavior of both the police and the BBC production team for the handling of one program (or one police case) and it's described at https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...-on-the-fiddle

    There is, at the moment, no Wikipedia page for Britain on the Fiddle, which is obviously peculiar in itself. It's a mainstream BBC Studios production in series 2. Not having a Wikipedia page is as unlikely as Panorama not having one.

    It gets odder. IMDB has no entry for the Britain on the Fiddle series either.

    Richard Bilton, the presenter, has no entry on Wikipedia. That's as unlikely as Jeremy Paxman having no entry, Richard Bilton has a history in investigative journalism dating back decades.

    He does have an IMDB entry but it makes no mention of his fronting Britain on the Fiddle for two series.

    There's some major Internet editing going on, that's what I reckon.

    Even the unidentified "BBC's digital video producer" job title never existed for the program, as far as I can tell, and the Guardian article is so coy that not a single name is given for anyone involved, not even the judge.

    All very peculiar.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.

    Ok, I'm not really awake yet but that does seem odd.

    Is it possible they are involved in something so dangerous there's protection for that reason? Or is it not naming people who are part of an ongoing investigation where no-one is yet charged?

    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    There are a host of programs that this may affect, where they show people in the course of committing crime etc.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth
