What do you think? This is how PA is reporting it: "BBC SCRAPS CRUFTS COVERAGE IN PEDIGREE BREEDS ROW

By Emily Beament, Press Association Environment Correspondent

The BBC will not televise Crufts next year following a dispute over the inclusion of certain breeds of pedigree dog in the competition, the Kennel Club said today.
The organiser said it would not be able to work with the broadcaster because of
"insupportable conditions" insisted on by the BBC to exclude certain breeds of
dog from the show. The dispute comes in the wake of a BBC documentary which claimed the breeding process used to produce pedigree dogs had resulted in a high incidence of inherited genetic disease."
