The below advert to appear in a meat realated TV program was forwarded to me (it will be filmed later this year), I have looked into it further and it is an application for Kill it, Cook it, Eat it 2 as you know this program was incredibly biased. It promoted itself as a platform for debate on the issue of killing animals for food but turned out to be nothing more than an advert for local farmers and butchers (farmers even praised it!11).
Before I knew what the application was for I contacted the production company saying I might consider it but the large amount of bias involved in these types of programs put me off I then described the faults of Kill it Cook it Eat it - not realising that they had made it!...no wonder they have not got back to me!!!
As you know they edited out the opinions of the representative from the Vegetarian Society and aired NO vegan opinions. They didnt show typical farming practices as that would mean showing factory farming. they didnt show typical slaughter practices instead showing slaughter at a family run, award winning slaughter house. As you are aware if they really wanted the audience to see typical slaughter practices they would put a hidden camera in an abattoir and show the audience the footage from it! Of course best practices occur when you know you are observed!!!
I suggest people here write to the production company (e-mail is below). If you saw the last one complain about their bias take. If you did not see the last one then still contact them and ask them how much time they are going to dedicate to a no meat view (instead of a humane meat view), are they going to include a REAL debate the reasons to reject meat.
