Sometimes the BBC are funny like this. It is rumoured that the UK is about the only place where the state broadcaster doesn't carry Sesame Street.
Talking of which, I searched for BBC Sesame Street on Google and found Sesame Street breaks Iraqi POWs
And no doubt Sesame Street to stay HIV-free in the US isn't news to you. I knew about the South African version getting an HIV-positive muppet, but I didn't know about Republican politicians writing to PBS.
