Bloody Cartoons shown on BBC2

mo telly
Apologies for not informing you in time, but last night BBC2 showed Bloody Cartoons, the Danish documentary about the Motoons crisis.

In contrast to its cowardly reaction at the height of the affair, the BBC showed all 12 of the cartoons on screen. In fact, the opening sequence showed Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard painting another version of the controversial “Tur-bomb” cartoon.

The funniest part was the secretary general of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, Ekmeliddin Ihsamogl, getting angry when asked if he would accept any responsibility for the violent street protests. He had written a furious letter to the Danish government, and stirred up anger at the OIC – but, of course, it had nothing to do with him.

UPDATE: (2:45 pm) The show provoked one complaint – and it was about perceived “bias”, rather than about the depiction of Mohammed.

    So what was the one complaint then?

    That was a damn good documentary though and I’m glad that the BBC had enough backbone to show the motoons uncensored, I find it tedious when other channels discuss them and have debates about them but don’t actually show the cartoons themselves so people can make up their own minds.
