image for Alice Roberts, Miranda Krestovnikoff… Now Bettany Hughes Fans Join debate
Historical stuff.

Fans of TV historian Bettany Hughes have waded in to the debate raging around how little or how much clothing female documentary presenters should wear in front of camera.

Fans of Coast presenters Alice Roberts and Miranda Krestovnikoff have been discussing the issue in these pages, and the matter seemed to be deadlocked.

Now admirers of Bettany Hughes, who is well-known for programmes such as The Minoans, The Spartans and Helen of Troy, claim they should all forget any hope of seeing more of the ladies than modesty permits.

Lawrence Chondroitin, of the Bettany Hughes Is A Top Historian Club, said: "Ms Hughes is a serious historian, a truly learned scholar. She investigates the evidence in the search for historical truth.

"Of course she is also attractive and can make us catch our breath when she wears those floaty summer frocks as she walks across some Greek island.

"But as an organisation we long ago came to terms with the fact that she was remaining fully clothed - that, unfortunately, those magnificent meringues were staying in the wrapper.

"It's time Dr Roberts's and Ms Krestovnikoff's admirers came to the same conclusion. It's just not going to happen."

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