London (AP) - The British Broadcasting Corporation has announced it is to air a pro-Saddam Hussein documentary. In a statement the BBC board of directors said 'the decision to make this documentary isn't expected to to be controversial'.
'What could anyone find controversial or offensive about this documentary?' said Richard Sambrook, director of BBC News, 'it just presents the other side of the story'.
The BBC documentary called 'Saddam Hussein: Pussy cat?' is thought to document Saddam's love of kittens and benevolence toward children. In a BBC interview Iraqi Interim Prime Minister, Iyad Allawi, said 'It's bullshit!', and looked visibly angry.
Saddam Hussein was unavailable for comment at time of press, as he was detained elsewhere.
Saddam Hussein: Pussy cat?, will air late 2005 on BBC-2 and BBC World News.
