The Producers Again

Listening to Reich Remixed

I am not usually bothered by the mutterings of Mary Whitehouse's new crew. Mediawatch is their new name which seems to suggest that they are an official organisation but they are just the normal get-together of concerned though slightly fuzzy old-women - the men too sometimes. However, despite being intrigued by the BBC's decision to show Jerry Springer - The opera, after having heard that it contains over 8000 swear words in its two hours, I began to wonder if the creators had not simply been drunk in a pub one night and one of them said I bet you I can get 8000 swear words on TV. The Jerry Springer Show itself cannot have that many swear words - that is one a second.

Compare this with the wonderful The Little Prince.
