BBC Dooms Australian Satire Of Royal Wedding

The BBC has nixed an Australian television show's satire of the wedding of Prince William and his fiancee, Kate Middleton. The network announced that its live feed was not to be used "in any drama, comedy, satirical or similar entertainment program or content". The program's producers seem fairly confident the BBC's announcement was aimed at them, but says their intent was misunderstood, announcing they were never going to do "four hours of Princess Di jokes."
