It has been revealed by a BBC insider that a series of TV programmes planned for the 2007 roster have been scrapped due to the content being described as 'unsuitable for British consumption & verging on crass'.
'Celebrity Arm Wrestling', 'Eastenders Easter Special (set in the North)'& a drama series set in Walsall in the 1980's called 'Yam Alright Yow Am' have all been cancelled, alongside a new series of Question Of Sport which showed Sue Barker M.B.E in an inebriated state.
An insider, Mr. X described the programmes as "a waste of license payers money", Mr X went on to say, "How can the BBC justify robbing every person in the UK of over £100 then throw it out the window? It's an outrage! Even the Eastenders Xmas special was crap, although I'd give that Stacy one".
The BBC are now believed to be in secret negotiations with the US Government to try & recoup some of the £36Million they spent producing the shows. George Bush in the past has made no secret of his admiration for the BBC's "policy of power" & "Thought provoking documentaries on furry animals" & it is thought the programmes in question will be beamed into US prisons, keeping inmates sedated for up to 6 hours a day.
The BBC were not available for comment, although UK TV Station, ITV have expressed some interest in buying the rights to 'Celebrity Arm Wrestling'.
