Nothing on telly since the ornaments were relegated to thge mantlepiece

In a shock announcement by BARB, the UK Broadcasters' Audience Research Board, a viewer has allegedly found a programme worth watching on British television.

Mona Lott, who lives in Penge, phoned into the organisation early yesterday prior to being hospitalised as a result of her discovery, to report that she had found a programme to watch on BBC2. Mrs Lott, was said to be now recovering well from her ordeal. She is currently in Penge General Hospital and is now being comforted by friends and family.

It seems she switched on the television expecting to find the usual vacuous celebrities guesting on the panels of equally vacuous quiz shows, or brain-dead 'wannabee' girls squealing incomprehensibly as they mispronounce English in shows where they either get their nails manicured, sing totally out of tune or are fat and get married.

She went on to say that she almost found a programme to watch back in 2005, but hadn't found anything since, and only actually switched on the television in error when connecting it to her computer to watch a copy of The Amazing Spiderman 2, complete with popcorn eating, and mobile telephone answering effects as well as the shadows of people standing up from their seats that her daughter's fiancee had filmed in a cinema in Hong Kong earlier in the week.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
