Olympics commentary finally was worth watching this weekend, when a Bachelorette party crashed the BBC's coverage


The bride, Maria, refused to end her 15 Minutes of Fame, but paid back the favor by giving the network some free publicity by having her party chant "BBC! BBC!" for the cameras...




The commentator, Scott Bryan, didn't seem to mind...



...and even followed up with her the next day



The cutie finally ended her brief guest starring role by signing off with the "call me" sign....




Here's to hoping her husband doesn't mind her public lack of marital commitment.

In what is a sad view of the state of reality, BBC reporter Sarah Teale was instantly harassed on the street when she finished her introduction about street harassment.

The BBC followed up with the reporter after the incident:

The East Midlands Today reporter said she was "genuinely shocked" by what the man said.

She said: "It's not banter, it's not funny and no-one should have to put up with it."

The TV presenter said it was good people were now talking about the issue but said claims the video was staged were "absolute nonsense".

She said: "It's fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn't staged.

"If it is a craze it doesn't make it any less offensive."



Attention to this subject has been on the rise the last year or so, especially after a video of a woman walking down the street alone, receiving multiple cat calls, went viral.

Soon you might be able to ride around in a TARDIS or soar over 221B Baker Street in a giant ferris wheel.

BBC Worldwide has signed a deal with London Resort Company Holdings to feature characters from its shows in an amusement park that is expected to open in 2020.

This means themed rides and attractions featuring characters and elements from "Doctor Who," "Sherlock," and "Top Gear" among others.

It will "combine the glamour of Hollywood with the best of British culture," according to The Guardian.

The $3.14 billion London Paramount resort is being constructed in Kent and – in addition to the rides – there will be a water attraction, a 2,000-seat theatre and 5,000 hotel rooms.

Police are looking for a man who robbed a shop keeper this past September in London.

In this video, from BBC's "Crimewatch," the suspect walks into the store and taps the man on the shoulder before he falls into a trance. He then simply reaches into his pocket and and takes what he wants.

The victim doesn't wake up until the thief is already gone, and by then it's too late.

Have you seen this man? Even if you did, you probably wouldn't remember him either.

The BBC doesn't mess around when it comes to promoting the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. What better way to amp you up for events like cross country skiing, figure skating, and the luge than to personify a menacing, craggy mountain whose swirling blizzards and endless avalanches are ready to annihilate anyone who dares to challenge its mighty strength?

Voiced by none other than Charles Dance of HBO's hit show, 'Game of Thrones,' this trailer will have you doing gate turns in your living room. A fair warning for for all you curlers out there...the 2014 Winter Olympics Games are ready to swallow you whole!
