Timely switch for Teachers TV

14th September 2007 at 01:00
the bbc is still smarting from the scandal over misleading editing, sparked by a preview clip which suggested the Queen had marched out of a photography session in a huff.

Luckily, there is no such dishonesty over at Teachers TV. The plucky digital channel whose annual budget is probably less than what the Beeb spends on biscuits started its autumn schedule this week. At the launch party, Andrew Bethell, Teachers TV chief executive, introduced a series of clips with a cheeky disclaimer.

He said the channel was to have shown a scene suggesting that Jim Knight, schools minister, had angrily stormed out of his colleague Ed Balls's office. But a footage review had found that Mr Knight had been rushing in to see Andrew Adonis instead. "That is not true" he added.

There is good news for those who cannot watch Teachers TV 24 hours a day on cable or satellite and have, no doubt, grown exhausted waiting up all night to catch the channel's early-morning broadcasts. It has now won a more sensible 4 to 5pm daily slot on Freeview.
