Pretend that we're cred

MediaGuardian's Monkey column reports on Alex Zane getting all overcome with excitement at the recent Royal Television Society Futures event:

Zane wants more live TV where you don't quite know what's going to happen next, citing as an example the edition of The Word where a member of L7 threw a tampon into the audience.

Erm... except, of course, that never happened. Donita Sparks did drop her pants on the Word, and she did lob a used tampon into the crowd at the Reading Festival, but somewhere in Zane's fevered memory box these two incidents have become conflated.

I think it's criminal the way that Zane hasn't been asked to give the Reith lecture yet.

He could present one on the Golden Age of TV comedy, couldn't he? You know, what with his excellent work on Balls of Steel and Space Cadets.
