Long Way Round - The Director's Cut

BBC bosses chop scenes from aspirational biking classic in light of Ross/Brand gaff

BLIMEY, BMW aren't going to be happy about this - a lot of the firm's branding on the bikes used in Ewan McGregor's Long Way Round TV show has been cut before it is shown again, on the orders of BBC bosses worried about the show's content in light of the Jonathan Ross / Russell Brand affair.

According to BBC insiders, TV top dogs are paranoid about the amount of problems anything even slightly controversial could now cause. As a part of measures to redress what could be seen as an imbalance in BBC output bosses have ordered the popular biker show to be re-edited to cut references to the brand of motorbikes used and products used.

How. Bloody. Ridiculous.
