Maybe, just maybe, and hopefully, this pointless advert was made whilst they were making another programme?

Otherwise it is just mental.

Personally I thought it was very surreal and in rather poor taste. It actually upset my wife quite badly. She was in tears poor soft thing. I expect there will be a ton of complaints about this. The reaching out to help and then just picking up a biscuit instead was fairly cruel I have to admit. The accusation that "you like to watch" after she falls to her doom in particular was quite offensive IMHO. I imagine most people who saw someone hanging on for their life would at the very least try to get help.

I can not see many being offended at anything other than (as mentioned) the waste or money and the obvious wasted potential.

After all the money it will ahve cost, its had to be pulled: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertain...io/2946386.stm

I think people are taking it too seriously, and to take offence of the tagline "you like to watch" is a bit extreme. Im sure the BBC arent actually accusing you of such apathy and laziness that you would see someone killed rather than helping. Its just a commercial folks.

Those who are so easily offended really ought to stick to the cartoon channels.. , or maybe they are too violent, so perhaps pre-nursery age stuff....

IMO

Is there anywhere I can download the full version? ;o)
