i want candy

bigbro2.jpgI see that Channel Four has been in the news a lot over the last few days. First the Diana broadcast and now a racism incident in Big Brother, after something similar though more vitriolic happened a year ago.

I have not been watching this series although, probably like many others, I tuned in last night when the scene was broadcast. Sure enough one of the housemates said something rather unpleasant to another, although the tone of the comment was perhaps naively ingrained rather than outwardly hostile, compared with the events of a year ago. In any event the situation created much discussion within the house and within hours broadcasters had swooped on the the housemate who left in a 3am eviction.

So Channel Four have had another TV feast and publicity, this time taking a rapid righteous stance against unacceptable language. And meantime, Big Brother gets more like 'Willy Wonka's Candy Factory' every day.
