I certainly wouldn't rule out the possibility that the outcome of the investigation is a message to the complainants to grow the fuck up, albeit in slightly more diplomatic language.


Oh, I would. This is Ofcom we're talking about here. They practically thrive on complaints and usually go out of their way to try and justify them.

Anyway, thanks to soup et all for the explanation Re. series I. I must've missed loads somehow or other. Only seems like a couple of weeks ago since the series started.

Nope; "C" hall at the Large Hadron Collider.

I can't understand the pulling of 'Idleness' in the wake of the nonsensical furore concerning Mr Clarkson's humourous comments.

However, when we are to be treated to a XL repeat series 8 episode 1, according to Digiguide anyway, rather than the 'offending' episode, I wonder whether someone has slipped opium into the BBC zampolit's mung beans.

Soup, that's amazing - you quoted a post before it had been posted!

Have you just bought one of those new mega-fast i9 processors that can process faster than light?



It's not one of those i9s, but it does have time travel capabilities.

Mine does that. I keep logging in for five minutes, then finding myself in the following day.

Idleness will be shown Feb 10 at 22:00 on BBC 2, according to DigiGuide.

Sadly no sign of the XL version, one imagines we will have to wait for Dave to oblige.

Edit:It appears this is now incorrect, DigiGuide updated and details for this episode are now absent.

Well, it would be nice to replace my dodgy, qualitatively speaking, YouTube copy, but short of any tv transmission I guess it will have to do for now.

it's been three months, and Jeremy of Doncaster has blighted our TV screens any number of times in those three months.

So it might be nice if the BBC were to break its deafening silence and tell us when we might actually be allowed to see Idleness. (Or if it would rather tell us that we're never going to be allowed to see it, then at least have the decency to say so.)

Just a grammatical point.

On style more than anything else.

"You're liars" just doesn't sound right. "You're all liars" seems much better.

Do people agree - is it a matter of style - or is there some "rule" that's being transgressed?

Not only that, but on Top Gear both he and the other presenters have repeatedly joked about the incident which got him into trouble in the first place. If they were happy to broadcast that on Top Gear - even allowing for the way Top Gear deliberately courts controversy - you would have thought that they'd be prepared to show that episode by now.

I think "repeatedly" is possibly over-stating it. I think there have been two references - one prior to the Ofcom ruling and one after.

But I agree that in continuing to withold the programme the BBC schedulers are clearly showing that they deserve to be taken outside and executed in front of their families.

Digiguide now has Idleness slated for transmission on Star Wars day at 22:00.

No word of the XL version at this time, however.

Edit: Confirmed on the BBC's website:
