BBC asks long-dead Bob Marley for interview

BBC asks long-dead Bob Marley for interview

1 hour, 46 minutes ago


LONDON (AFP) - A red-faced BBC apologised for requesting an interview with Bob Marley, the Jamaican reggae legend who died 24 years ago.

BBC Three, one of the public broadcaster's digital TV channels, sent an e-mail to the Bob Marley Foundation saying it wanted to do a documentary about his hit song "No Woman No Cry".


It said the project would involve Marley -- who died of cancer in May 1981 at the age of 36 -- "spending one or two days with us", and that "it would only work with some participation from Bob Marley himself".


In a statement, the BBC said: "We are obviously very embarrassed that we didn't realise that the letter to the Marley Foundation did not acknowledge that Mr Marley is no longer with us."


Marley would have been 60 last February 6, a date that was celebrated with great fanfare by his legion of fans worldwide.


A BBC press officer, contacted by AFP in London on Friday, confirmed that the gaffe was not an April Fool's joke.

Oh. My God.

This better be an April Fools' Joke, or someone should be shot.

Given that Taco didn't include a link, I'm guessing he is pulling our chain (I, for one, don't like to have anything of mine pulled by Taco John).

They should probably just get up, stand up and admit it.

Well, you do know that the BBC is nothing but a bunch of Crazy Baldheads who really ought to just simmer down.
