The Beeb are planning on copying China TV's sensational hit called; Execution TV. A roving female reporter travels around the local prisons interviewing prisoners before their death sentences are carried out and in China she had to be quick. Once they are sentenced they only have 7 days left!
Chinese law is slightly different and anything from being gay to VAT fraud could lead criminals to the "big chop"! The BBC are planning a similar show, but their roving reporter has slightly more time because the death penalty has not been re-introduced yet. But just in case it does, they plan to interview Ian Brady as a sensational first, the nutty Yorkshire Ripper alias Peter Sutcliffe is second and Rosemary West has also been invited for a cuppa before she goes to be toasted. Then they are travelling to the US for a pleasant chat with Charles Manson and a visit to Norway is also planned for a cup of tea and crumpets with "top marksman" Anders Breivik, before he is given 77 lethal injections.
The show promises to be a major hit and soaps like Coronation Street, Eastenders, etc, are really worried that their ratings will drop like bodies on the end of a hangman's noose. So the producers have also decided to re-introduce the death penalty in the shows; after all it's just fantasy aint it?
