FACT: Normal BBC documentaries have a distinct style. Lots of shakey camera work, gimmicks, shots of the narrator walking on the other side of the street, talking to the camera on this side of the street. Often in a modern documentary, there will be some kind of 'race against time' element. And they often turn the whole documentary into some sort of story about the presenter. Or presenters. 'Comedy' double acts are popular now.
But in the BBC Panoram documentary, all the penny whistles, CGI tricks and format gimmicks were missing. Which can only mean one thing.
The documentary was directed by foreigners.
