No mention of anything Roman, history, art, religion..... on the BBC would be complete without a visit to that wink wink nudge nudge snigger snigger brothel in Pompei. The paint must have been pretty much scraped from the walls by now by all the BBC camera crews traipsing through. Each amayyyzed presenter must belong to a diminishingly small group of people who haven't seen it before on sundry BBC documentaries. But how did it get into the Who Was Eddie Izzard's Mum? fiesta on Wednesday? This was stressed as NOT the route that his great Mum had taken, but the route was traced anyway, because it led to wink wink nudge nudge snigger snigger that brothel! A very good impression of tabloid trash posing as documentary.
On the subject of non-sequiturs, did we catch the item about the submarine that is set to boldly explore deeper than any other sub has been before? Science editor Palab Ghosh had a vital question: What music do you play down there? Followed a blast of pop music, not the music in question but a random bit of pop music to enlighten those listeners unfamiliar with the concept of pop music. Then followed a discussion of divers' tastes in music. His only other question was What are you going to find down there? (well if we knew that.... go back to your pop music). I know ths was on radio (R4, Today on Tuesday) but it's further evidence of the BBC having lost the editorial plot. What on earth are they playing at?
