Script writers needed

close

Warning: This post was published more than 10 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 10 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  • Factual information might be outdated.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.

Whoever wrote the script for tonight’s Six needs to be sacked.

[In reference to prostitution] Fiona Mactaggart went out with police to experience the problem first-hand

Is that not libellous?

Even if it’s not, why on Earth did the next item need a live from inside a waste incinerator, with a noisy crane operating in the background? What did that add to the story? Not to mention that the package following opened with a lengthy shot of someone putting some rubbish in a bin. Just in case we didn’t know what rubbish was.

I’m not normally one to moan about these things, but that was, frankly, ridiculous.
