RDF Television, the distributors of Martin Durkin's “Great Global Warming Swindle” have landed themselves in hot water over a documentary on the Queen.
BBC and ITV have suspended the commission of programs from RDF after it was revealed that a RDF documentary used misleading footage of the Queen storming out of a portrait sitting. RDF was forced to apologize to the BBC for the misleading footage, while the BBC chief executive was forced to apologize to the Queen. Ouch!
Seems it isn't just Durkin himself who has a penchant for misrepresentation. And to think people actually believe that Durkin's Swindle film should be aired in our schools.
Head of Friends of the Earth, Tony Juniper, has the scoop in the Guardian.
