New Europe-Really Good by Loretto on 18 December 2010 1:23am
OK I had to make a new thread for New Europe because I didn't want


to be scrolling on the screen for 24+ hours.

Anyway at a risk of stirring the proverbial sh.....t,
I was wondering if the audio in New Europe was edited to reflect the beeb's censorship of Michael Palin's commentary on the Mostar bridge?
I watched it the other day and my DVD edition has him saying "there was no reason for the destruction of the bridge..." So what's the big hoopla?

I agree that censorship and PC is strangling creativity and hiding truth but my God to actually take one viewer's complaint into account and make a big hoopla! Seriously!?

Here's what I am ranting on about....


This ties in with the Poland Tour thread arguments also.

I don't know the answers to any of your questions.

I've just watched an episode of New Europe on Dave (a digital Freeview channel), mostly in Lithuania, and it's the one where Mr P has the leech treatment - quite squeamish to watch.

Got the last episode this morning on Dave. Mr P's got a really pleasant personality.

Here here!

I'm all up for upping the 'anti'

Hope your thread gets on the 24+ too?
