BBC technical mistake

The BBC said that a ‘technical’ human error was to blame for some unfortunate sound effects being broadcast over their news item about the  Oscar Pistorius trial on the local station for Coventry and Warwickshire.

Radio Today spoke to the BBC who sheepishly stated  “There was a technical mistake where sound effects being prepared in another studio for an unrelated item were accidentally broadcast over the news bulletin”.

Personally given the nature of the sound effects and their timing…I can’t help but wonder if someone was attempting to put the news reader off his stride…classic school boy prank…but I guess we’ll never know.
