Higgs Boson - clearly visable in this BBC still

The elusive Higgs Boson - the theorised particle which inspired a 10 billion pound hole in the ground has been found. Well so the BBC would have you believe.

The BBC, famed for producing misleading 'factual' programming claims to have photographed the particle during the making of Antiques Roadshow.

Meanwhile 'scientists' at CERN are about to announce their official research findings, but are already preparing the public by trumpeting the claim that it will be more exciting if the particle is not found - I bet that wasn't part of the spiel when they were after funding!

The BBC are hard at work producing a programme about the saga and will fit an appropriate commentary whatever the findings.

Production of their latest in depth expose 'Walking with Computer Graphics' has had to be pushed back.

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