    I watched the documentary thing.. unless the bloke was coughing at other times to the ones that were presented on the show, the whole thing was a blatant cheat!

    *cough* I saw it last night */cough*

    More seriously, he was found guilty beyond all reasonable doubt for the very serious offence for which he was tried. Accordingly, he has been sentenced for this, which considered, amongst other things, the gravity of the crime and the circumstances in which it was executed.

    Me too. Well. When the answers came up i did, cos google.co.uk surposedly comes up with loads n loads of sites, so i assumed thats why they called it that.

    Who said the internet was pointless! Could have won me £1,000,000!! I didnt know many before that, but thats not the point!

    What you have to remember when you were watching that programme was that it was made by ITV who also show the programme. It was edited, and the sounds highlighted, to show everything they wanted you to see and hear. It was only one point of view, not a good, rounded, even, two-sided, programme. There wasn't a chance to see and hear it from another point of view, or to hear any defense. Also, the programme said you would see the whole show, or at least gave you the impression you would, wheras they only showed edited highlights. It would've been interesting to see it whole, with the enhanced coughing, to see how the whole programme looked and felt.
    Mind you, it was fairly convincing, and it does appear he was cheating.

    Remember, never always believe what you see on the telly, hear on the news, or read in the papers. Don't trust them completely to give you the whole story, or show every point of view.

    LOL :lol: What sort of course? Media studies?
    It's just that I have learnt never to believe everything I see and hear, and try to see another point of view, or from another angle. Of couse, that means I always find it hard to make a decision about almost anything. :confused:

    after the enhanced volume one the actual show was broadcast on itv 2. the judge and jury were satisfied. if they had someone a little brighter they could have pulled it off. that major was a complete tosser or not very good at being a criminal. when you get caught for nicking a million quid you get more than a suspended sentence as a rule. but if your a najor it seems not. that was the biggest bloody crime.
