Trivia

On 1 April 1957 a news segment was broadcast about the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest with footage of Swiss peasants harvesting spaghetti strands from spaghetti trees. Many viewers were taken in and phoned in asking how to grow their own spaghetti trees where they received the reply "place a sprig of spaghetti in a tin of tomato sauce and hope for the best." Considered one of the best April Fools' hoaxes of all time. See more »

User Reviews

 
A ridiculous and worthless precis of British Culture.
10 October 2017 | by notom-23012See all my reviews

As 'News' or 'Documentary' this programme is absolutely WORTHLESS.

However, as Propaganda - it's the equivalent of 'Lord Haw-Haw' radio broadcasts during the 2nd world war.

It's sheer inability to convey true information is pretty much unparalleled, within its 30 minute boundaries, yet it still manages to push across the ideals and idea's of its masters.

If, you really want to consider a 'fact' as truth - watch this sh*t and choose the opposite.
