Call For More Tripe On TV

Tripe Marketing Board Chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has called for more cookery programmes to be shown on television - especially those which feature tripe.

Sir Norman was particularly critical of BBC4, describing it as “a tripe-free zone.”

Speaking at a convention of retired tripe dressers in Bolton on Saturday, he said: “The BBC is doing a great job and is broadcasting far more tripe than it used to but there is always room for improvement.”  He called on broadcasters to consider re-instating the popular Cook Off! annual Cookathon which was broadcast between 1999 and 2007.

Pointing to the increased opportunities available with the advent of digital channels, Sir Norman said:  “We believe there is a market for people who want to watch cookery programmes 24 hours a day 7 days a week.”
