Nanny Bans Aliens
In the midst of her greatest crisis for decades, I am gemused to see that Auntie still has time to focus on the "important" issues.
Step forward Professor Brain Cox (ex keyboard player from Dare) who was happily going to do a live broadcast of Stargazing Live, wherein he would attempt to make contact with a newly discovered planet that may be home to aliens.
Professor Cox wanted to point a radio telescope at Threapleton Holmes B (a name that just roles off the tongue), a planet discovered by amateur stargazers on his show. The telescope would pick up radio emissions from the planet.
Unfortunately the good professor had not bargained on the remarkably complex rules and procedures that broadcasters have to follow if they are to show anything on one of Auntie's channels (the more wide awake of you may detect a hint of irony here).
Auntie banned him from doing the show live.
Regulations and health and safety, in case the aliens answered back.
Auntie was worried that there may be some intergalactic swearing etc.
Ooh the irony of it all, if only Auntie had applied the same rigorous rules and procedures to Newsnight on 2nd November!
