Deputy Turtle sticks his neck out

Maybe John Beyer wasn’t available when the Mail/Evening Standard called for a comment about the withdrawn BBC Wimbledon ad which featured the shattering player. No matter, because Mediawatch-UK spokesman Dave Turtle was there to provide the kind of high-quality quote we’ve come to expect from that organisation.

Tennis is supposed to be a positive sport, not something that is negative or damaging.

Worthy of the Massah himself, I’m sure you’ll agree.

    I was wondering if that would get pulled. It’s a pretty disturbing trailer for pre=watershed broadcast.

    I thought that trailer was great. It’s a shame inovative and new programme promotion is being scupperd by oversenstitive souls and mediawatch-uk.

    I agree. I really liked the trailer. I’m staggered that people have complained about it, even armed with knowledge of some of the stupid things people take “offense” to.
