Teapot Blowing on BBC One’s Graham Norton Show

A few weeks ago, I told you guys our site would be featured for our teapot blowing article on a major British show. Well folks, the show aired yesterday, but I was kind of disappointed by the exposure the blog got. It looks like they saved the html file of the article locally, removed the blog’s header and most of the stuff around it, and only kept the pictures that interested them. I think that was inappropriate of them after asking us to get written permission for them from all people who sent in pictures for the post.

Unfortunately for all our participants, only reader Keaton got his face exposed to the British masses. The usual viewership of the show is of around 4+ millions people, so here’s your 30 seconds of fame, Keaton!

  1. Graham Norton, the point of teapot blowing is not distance but accuracy!

    If all the U.K. can offer, the Canadian team will take the gold easily.

  3. Poor form Graham Norton, poor form. And with Robert Downy Jr. on the show too. You should complain and get them to have some 3 second insincere apology at the end of the show during the credits.

  4. The BBC is a publicly funded organisation and part of it’s mandate forbids it to “advertise” things in any way shape or form (there are no advert breaks, etc and no show sponsorships). The title & Ads were more than likely stripped out due to this obligation by the legal team there.

    • Thanks for the comment Matt. We’re not exactly talking about “advertising” here by the way, only giving credit to an idea that was taken to create content for a show. Meh.

  6. That’s TV for you. Though a bit disappointed I wasn’t surprised that they didn’t scroll through every picture available. I was, however, shocked that they stripped out the header to the website! Source is important on the web after all..

  9. You guys need to chill. He is quite evidently taking the piss out of one of the most ridiculous sports ever. If you can't stomach having fun poked at you then you need to disable your internet connection.
