image for BBC dupes the public some more...
BBC (c) still of a 'Lynx' in its natural mountain enviroment

The Bogus Broadcasting Corporation, funded by the UK TV license payers have again been found to be faking more events for their so-called factual broadcasting.

Top Gear, the programme not about cars but three chaps enjoying themselves at our expense is the latest culprit. It has emerged that a scene involving James May in a Ferrari and some learner drivers, was infact faked and the drivers of the learner vehicles were actually the instructors. Suspicions have now been raised over other elements of the show.

Apparently the episode where the three amigos travel across a desert was filmed in a disued quarry outside Bognor. The souped up cars/amphibious vehicle challenge was carefully edited from footage from a swimming pool and a WW2 D-day landing documentary.

This latest embarressment comes fresh after the beeb were found out faking nature 'documentaries' in zoos.

A spokeperson from the BBC spoke to us from a location scouting trip in the Bahamas "We at the BBC are ever mindful of our obligation to spend the license payers money. Occasionally we take the decision that entertainment is far more important than presenting factual information, and in these cases make up an excuse to appear that we are saving money or suchlike. On this subject we have made considerable saving. Rather than wasting money on cameras and filming equipment, we now produce 99.9% of our 'documentaries' using CGI in an office in Slough."

Alarm bells were also raised when a leaked memo for the 2012 Strictly come dancing line up became public. In a gaff, someone had suggested Fred Astaire as the wildcard, and had already set to work producing the legends dance routines on a PC. It was only when an eagle eyed quality control employee pointed out that in fact Mr Astaire had sadly died 25 years ago, that the blunder was spotted.
