"Not in any way, Jim. As you would know if you'd ever been there. "
Then why if Bryan defending it here?
Messing round with what others are doing is, at the very least unethical, in this case it goes beyond that with what 'The Travelling People' was and what it managed to achieved - appears to be fine with Bryan, or at least, not worth his commenting on.
At the very least it forced a hard pressed production team working to a deadline have to re-do part of the programme a few days before it was due to be broadcast.
MacColl is accused often enough of having told people what to do yet it's fine for Bryan to say "why didn't he get her to sing something from her own family tradition?" which sounds very much like somebody telling the producers of the programme what they should be doing
Double standards or what?
