Name that cat - results and a new competition!
Hugh Sykes (for it is he) writes from Baghdad:
Remember Mrs Slocombe?
The competition to name the BBC Baghdad cat has come up with "Tigris" - which is quite neat!
And Amanda was right. She WAS pregnant. (Tigris, not Amanda, he hastens to add)
So as a result, we now have another competition - unconstrained by ITACU* (don't ask, but it was in a memo from the D-G today) - a name-that-kitten competition!
Phone lines are open. Calls will be charged at 10,000 Iraqi dinars per minute (This is beyond your jurisdiction, Mr. D-G.....)
Just call 0901OhNeverMind.
Tigris and TBC:
Tigris and TBC in (almost) perfect step:
Altogether now: "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh"
*in case you were really desperate to know what ITACU is, here's part of the memo from our leader:
"Today we are announcing the launch of ITACU - the Interactive Technical Advice and Contracts Unit. Consultation with the Unit will now become a mandatory part of the process for running competitions, votes and awards - a requirement which will be reflected in BBC compliance forms"
