This would appear to be in relation to the BBC Wales program being discussed in this thread here;
 
http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/BBC-Documentary-prohormones-m5257668.aspx
 
So, another well research, un-biased, fair investigation conducted by the BBC.
 
But yes, this is likely to a very big knock on effect in terms of availability of a number of products.

It would be good to get some verification on any possible link between this and the documentary. 
I have a feeling that my initial suspicions have been shown to be true. Is it no wonder that the body building fraternity is suspicious of journalist`s true intentions ? 

Ignorance: Reassuringly Expensive.

Here's a link tot he actual program;
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b053hgys/week-in-week-out-sports-supplements-no-great-shakes
And here are the 'credits' for that episode;
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b053hgys/credits
 
Note the producers name, Phil Williams, the same Phil Williams that posted in that other thread promising a well researched and balanced documentary.
 
Instead what we got was a biased, poorly researched piece of 'investigatory journalism' with a clear agenda, an agenda which we all guessed correctly.
 
My question is, is there a legitimate complaint to be made here against the BBC and / or this producer?

To quote Phil from that other thread;
 
"Hi guys,
 
Understand why you would urge caution.
 
We will definitely be looking at the risks of prohormones, especially when they are used without proper research. But we are don't sensationalise and are obligated to make a balanced, fair and accurate programme in accordance with BBC guidelines. To be clear, this is a programme about the sports supplement industry (not just prohormones) and it definitely not going to be focused on bodybuilding or steroids."

I don't think we can argue with the BBC about the programme bud. Its obvious from the start what the outcome would be , the programme was out to vilify the supplement industry from protein powder to prohormones from start to finish.
I think the BBC would be better suited asking questions about the tobacco and alcohol industry that jointly create more cancers and anti social behaviour respectively than any of the products you guys consume.
It seems it is more sociably acceptable to smoke cannabis than to take supplements in some circles.

It's absolutely fine to touch kids up, but fully grown adult males taking a chemical to make their muscles bigger, ohhh I don't think so.

I do like the "power lifting" granny featured as one of their experts, claiming that anybody can start a supplement company (erm, yes, that would be called free enterprise...) and that they can put anything into these supplements, you never know what you're taking etc...
 
Ahhh grannies, there's no fooling them.
 
One question I do have however - is M1t actually on the list of banned and controlled substances? If not, it would be quite easy to force the BBC to issue some apologies.

I agree. It's not worth the stress (which is muscle-loss inducing).

Sue the BBC for the stress they have caused you.

No, it isn't.
The complete shambles of a show can't even be bothered to read the words in front of them, the guy clearly says ''methyl testosterone'' which is a prescription med, not m1t, they were informed that the 2 were different, by email, before the show, clearly they just wanted to be d*cks.

It's all lies and missinformation.

Nice to know the tax payers money goes to fund drivel.

Even basic comments like that granny saying whey is processed and processed food is bad. Doh! McDonald's yes, pure whey isolate No. For f4ck sake you sl4aag.

And elmer fud from Loughborough uni. WTF!@??

The only sensible person was the cookie guy in a blue hair net - he spoke sense.

Just watching it right now on lunch at work, I like the bit where they say "the police have been contacted" pffffft like they will be interested.
 
Would have been nice for them to show all the supplement companies who are doing things right.
