had a bit of an effect on the BBC on Friday. Media Monkey at mediaguardian.co.uk reports:

BBC2 was broadcasting the Open golf from Carnoustie, where, ironically enough, the sun was out and play was continuing. Monkey wonders whether a higher force was sending the Beeb its own punishment over the recent spate of phone scams."
