    And they wonder why people say the BBC is dumbing down. Sure it's not an April Fool though?

    ^^Yeah, you need to read the articles first..... ;)


    I can just see the BBC reporting their "discovery" of the death of Bob Marley in an exclusive story and interview straight from the mouths of people in the Marley Foundation! :p

    After all, it was from BBC3, the yoof wing. :)

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if it was some (not so) bright young thing with a clipboard and Armani rectangular frames...

    There is a comedian named Bob Marley who's alive... maybe they got him confused.

    This reminds me of the mistake NASA made with the Mars lander and the imperial/metric units mix-up because both events are similarly embarrassing.
