Nazi War Diggers - entertainment?

National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) has ordered a four-part series thoughtfully called "Nazi War Diggers", which follows a group of amateur detectorists as they hastily dig up bodies of soldiers who died on the Eastern Front. Many people (just one example) have expressed their horror at both the unprofessional way the bodies are treated and the tasteless exploitation of the activity for entertainment.

Feeling a bit sorry for the besieged NGCI, I've quickly knocked up a draft flyer (shown above) to help their publicity campaign. Please feel free to share.

I hope they pull the plug on this charade before any more damage is done. Whoever though this was morally right to start with needs to be sacked

Ah I like that, made me chuckle!
On a serious note, the TV channel must be getting complaints left right and centre, surely they can't broadcast it now....?

Thanks, guys. I don't know how much lower TV can stoop just to boost their ratings.
