Richplanet TV Has Been Pulled From National Television
I learned of some sad news last night… sad news at least for me, although I suspect there will be many others who share my sentiments. Richard D Hall’s excellent show “Richplanet TV” has been pulled from the Showcase channel due to a complaint received by OFCOM from an apparently disgruntled viewer.
Although, OFCOM have yet to rule, “Information TV” (the company that held the contract making it possible for the show to air on television) has decided that dealings with OFCOM are just too time consuming (amongst other reasons) and have effectively decided to terminate the shows contract. This means that Richplanet TV currently no longer appears on TV.
Richard D Hall has made a short video explaining the details here:http://www.richplanet.net/pulled.php
I have watched Richard’s show pretty much from day one. It is largely thanks to his tireless efforts to showcase often incredibly dedicated and legitimate researchers, that I became aware of the work of Dr Judy Wood, Andrew Johnson, Lloyd Pye, Rupert Sheldrake, the list goes on. It is a safe bet to also say that it would have taken me considerably longer to become aware of Anthony Beckett and Exopolitics GB, Dave Hodrien and BUFOG, the determined work of David Cayton or Gary Heseltine, or Ben Emlyn Jones’ HPANWO blog, had it not been for Richplanet TV.
Richard himself has been no slouch, having researched and compiled numerous documentaries on a variety of subjects, as well as blowing the whole 9/11 / ‘no planes’ discussions completely up in the air thanks to his meticulously assembled radar data evidence.
I will also miss the laughs! Despite the serious subject matters on the show, it was hard to avoid a smirk every time Richard reached for his trusty “bulls*** detector”, referred to something unusual as “it’s Bob Lazar!” or even the earlier days of the show when guests were “beamed” aboard the old “Richplanet Starship”!
I have often said that my personal list of reasons for throwing the old “hypnobox” in the local skip is a very long one! Despite the many hours that my TV has gathered dust in the corner, waiting for the inevitable final journey to the dump, it has received continual reprieves – mostly thanks to Richplanet TV.
Why should any of this matter though? Well, in a nutshell, there are still a huge number of folk who watch the TV, regardless of the tripe that is shovelled out for mass consumption. Perhaps, in the back of my mind, I always felt that Richplanet TV was the one stubborn little bastard that refused to budge from the airways… that whilst it remained, there would always be one hour of truth and integrity left on TV. The decision to remove the show is perhaps an inevitable sign of the times.
My hope is that the show will return to the box in the corner. Richard is a dedicated individual who, I’m sure, will not be beaten by this turn of events. His website still remains, as will his documentaries and talks. I hope he will continue to interview researchers and report on all manner of subjects, perhaps keeping Richplanet TV available as an internet based show.
At the end of the day, whilst TV continues to articulate its stranglehold over the majority, I truly believe that we need outlets of enlightenment and integrity – outlets like Richplanet TV, to redress the balance and remind the powers that be that they can’t have it all their own way… that the truth will always point to itself.
Whatever the future may hold, at least Richard appears to be unfettered by these current circumstances. Given his determination, we can be certain that Richplanet (in some form or another) will be around for a while to come.
Long may it continue and my huge respect and gratitude to Richard for all he has done to open my eyes a little more.
