image for Prof Brian Cox: "Keep It Loud!" Producers' Heads Explode.
Coxy likes his music of the spheres loud.

Dishy physicist Brian Cox has sent BBC production staff into a tizz by saying that despite viewers' complaints, he likes the music in his new series Wonders of the Universe.

As we reported yesterday, after hundreds of viewers complained about the volume of the music and effects in the programme, producers were re-editing to tone it down.

But Cox said: "I think we can be too responsive to the minority of people who complain. My view is it should be rather more a cinematic experience - it's a piece of film on television, not a lecture."

This difference of opinion has completely confused BBC producers, who now feel they can do no right for doing wrong.

Said an insider: "They're all in a tizz - they feel they can't do right for doing wrong.

"I've seen one or two of them wandering around the corridors at the Beeb, bouncing off the walls, sucking their thumbs - apparently, one guy's head exploded."

We spoke to one producer, who told us: "Have you seen the pretty flowers in the park. I like the pretty flowers in the park - I'm going to see them with my mummy. Have you seen my mummy? Are you my mummy?"

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