LONDON: The British monarch is trying her best to ban the controversial BBC film produced by a trailer which wrongly showed her storming out of a photoshoot, a leading daily reported here on Sunday.
Buckingham Palace and the BBC are at loggerheads over the Corporation's refusal to scrap the documentary film, the Daily Mail reported, quoting well-placed sources without revealing their names. Though BBC has assured the queen that it would ensure the final edit of the programme, A Year With The Queen, so that viewers were not misled, the Palace's still not convinced and sticking to its demand to ban the film.
The Palace has protested, arguing that neither they nor the viewing public could have any confidence in the film and called for the scrapping of the broadcast, say sources.
The BBC issued a statement: "The BBC has commissioned Will Wyatt (a former managing director of BBC Broadcast) to conduct an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the inclusion of this project in the recent BBC1 autumn launch." "We do not feel it appropriate to comment on matters relating to this until the inquiry has reported," the BBC was quoted.
There is a good reason the British media is refered to as “The Gutter Press” by its own citizens.
Why should the Queen trust these scum at their word. They have already lied once.
