image for The Hour lasts for Six Hours - What else is the BBC lying about? by Mr Ray Ving, 79
Ray Vig, out in the park, as usual.

Hello there,

Well, call me an old duffer if you like, I am 79 you know, but I still have my own teeth and hair. They are kept in a box above my wardrobe. It is nothing weird, I just think that if I can be cloned in the future, then I should be.

I have been watching the old beeb lately, as you do. There is a programme they are showing called The Hour. I sat down to watch it, thinking it would only be an hour of my life, but it isn't. It is Six hours. I don't know about you, but I don't have the time to be this involved in a programme.

Gladys and Doris don't like it if I am late for the Bridge Club. We do not play Bridge, obviously, it is a night-club by a bridge. If you knew these parts like I do, you would have known that. We go down and have so coke and biscuits. I mean Coca Cola. How else do you thing I lost my Teeth?

Anyway, it suddenly occurred to me, if the BBC is willing to lie to us about that, what else have they been lying to us about? Anyway, I have things to do, but I have made a list. Here it is.

I don't think that Captain Jack Harkness is immortal.
I don't think Dr Who is more than nine hundred years.
I don't believe that the BBC can travel through time in a Police Box.
I don't believe that all of that drama can happen in Neighbours.
I don't believe that no man can resist the charms of Libby Kennedy, like they say.
I don't think Fawlty Towers is a good way to run a Hotel, but they pass it off as a documentary.

These are just some of the things I can think of now. I am 79 you know.

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