Naturally, we all wish to know the views of the man whose production companies gave us The Big Breakfast and The Word when it comes to the current rash of TV and radio fakery stories, and Bob Geldof doesn't disappoint. He's not bothered at the 6Music claims:
Words that might make the next Ten Alps pitch to Radio 2 a little trickier, what with Lesley Douglas controlling both the networks.
More surprisingly, Geldof is outraged by Blue Peter fudging the name of the cat - he compares this to God lying to you, and pledges to send back his Blue Peter award, if he can remember what it is:
The Blue Peter Mega Thing Annual Prize. Blimey, nobody's ever been self-important enough to send that back.
Of course, Bob knows a thing or two about inaccuracies carried on the BBC, because he's been responsible for a fairly big one himself, when he told Jonathan Ross that the island of Lampedusa had buried "thousands" of bodies of fleeing Africans, running out of space in the graveyards and sending for container ships to take the bodies off the island. At best, this turns out to have been a grotesque exaggeration.
