BBC Cock-up or Clever Marketing Ploy?

So Saturday Evening’s Football League round-up show was ‘accidentally’ interrupted and replaced for a good 30 seconds by footage from the film on ITV that was airing at the same time. That film was the god awful Blue Crush however the switch over just happened to coincide with the film’s most captivating scene, when Kate Bosworth (officially the worst actress to have ever drawn breath) is filmed paying a visit to the lavatory!

Now was this is pure coincidence? A movie of 104 minutes and the exact moment this televisual glitch occurs is for the duration of the ‘toilet’ scene? So there are two schools of thought, 1) the person in charge of feeds wasn’t paying attention and somehow flicked a switch (it does happen, having worked in television for some time, i have known such things to occur) 2) the BBC is keen to boost audience figures for the show so makes a calculated attempt to derive a new audience hoping to see a similar ‘glitch’ next week, when no doubt Basic Instinct will happen to be on the other channel!
