You "look forward" to the BBC's re-screening of Horizon and their "complete humiliation and rejection" of my work.
Dear Dr Conspiracy
(Hi there, by the way!) I guess you also think I got what I deserve from the good old boys at the BBC and are also looking forward to them sticking it to me again?
Now here's my challenge for you both.
Step 1: go to "BBC Horizon Scandal" button on this site.
Step 2: press button.
Step 3: Move mouse arrow to following item: "Appendix: Arts of the Cutting Room -- What Was Said and What Was Broadcast.
Step 4: Click
Step 5: Read complete transcript of everything I was asked by BBC Horizon about carbon-dating and all my uncut unedited replies -- running to several pages. The passages in bold are what Horizon put on air. All the rest was cut. The passages in bold say: "I'm not required to be encyclopaedic. In Heaven's Mirror there is no representation whatsoever of recent carbon dates for Tiahuanaco. I simply don't discuss it in there."
Step 6: Refer to original transcript of Horizon programme (available on this site) and discover what immediately follows the above butchered rump of what I actually said to Horizon. Yes, it is Ken Feder lamenting how terrible it is when someone like me insists on ignoring carbon-dating, "not even rejecting it, just ignoring it."
Step 7: Go back to step 5. Re read the extensive comments and answers that I gave to Horizon on the subject of carbon dating and why I feel that this method should not be the sole arbiter for the dating of megalithic sites. Note that I state specifically that I did set out my position on carbon dating in an earlier book -- Fingerprints of The Gods
Step 8: Ask yourself: was the editing job that the BBC did on Hancock here fair?
Step 9: Post your answer in a message on this site. If you think this was fair editing by the BBC then say so and say why. And never mind whether you think I am right or I am wrong. Just ask yourself whether what I came out of the cutting-room saying about carbon-dating is representative of what I actually said to Horizon, and whether any of this justifies Ken Feder's accusation that I ignore carbon-dating.
Step 10: If you agree that this bit of editing was unfair then please complain to the BBC and copy your complaints to us here.
Thank you gentlemen. I look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes, Graham Hancock
