Warning: This post was published more than 11 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 11 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Five are, apparently, going to show a forty-five minute programme in prime time exploring the origins of communism. Narrated in Russian. Where on Earth does that fit into the three F’s?
For a moment, I thought that they might actually be trying to dumb-up their TV programmes. Then I realised that this was the first in a series of six, clearly designed for nothing more than publicity purposes. With reference to a programme later in the series, the producer said
The producer had to explain to Germaine Greer that the viewers did not necessarily know what a misogynist is.
Is it possible to do anything other than smile at Five’s attempts to become respectable?
