Even if BBC Fake Fetch news, in The Times today ... or was the Fetch family in Wales at the weekend?

The BBC has been forced to remove a video of Welsh rugby highlights from its website after it was spotted that fake crowd noise had been added to the clips. The round-up of highlights from the Principality Premiership at the weekend showed many of the matches taking place in front of empty stands, but each try was greeted with a roar from fans and loud applause.

It became apparent to viewers that the sound effects had been manipulated to include extra crowd noise. To make it more embarrassing for the BBC, it appeared that the identical recording had been used for each try, as the same cry of “Fetch him! Fetch!” could be heard in the build-up of each move.

The BBC replaced the video after being asked about the fake crowd noise by The Times. A spokesman for BBC Wales said: “The video was published in error and a new video will be posted.”
