Το Βρετανικό κανάλι Chalenger παραδέχτηκε έμμεσα την γκάφα του στο ζήτημα του Αλεξάνδρου


Απο το Blog : Akritas - ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑ ΤΗΣ ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑΣ

Είπε ότι ήταν λάθος να σηκώσει την σημαία της FYROM και ζητά συγνώμη για την παρεξήγηση.Βέβαια σε ότι αφορά την ερώτηση κάνει την γαργάρα μιας και λέει ότι εξέτασε δύο πηγές σε ότι αφορά την ουσία της.Σαν να ρωτάμε ......η Ελισσάβετ είναι Αγγλίδα ή Βρετανίδα ?Απλά υπενθυμίζω τι είπαν δύο Βρετανοί ιστορικοί για το θέμα...

Nicholas G. L. Hammond, ‘Philip of Macedon’ Duckworth Publishing, February 1998

"Philip was born a Greek of the most aristocratic, indeed of divine, descent... Philip was both a Greek and a Macedonian, even as Demosthenes was a Greek and an Athenian...The Macedonians over whom Philip was to rule were an outlying family member of the Greek-speaking peoples."

Robin Lane Fox, ‘Alexander the Great’ Penguin USA, Reissue Edition, September 1994

"These plains would be the envy of any Greek visitor who crossed their southern border by the narrow vale of Tempe and the foot of Mount Olympus. He would pass the frontier post of Heraclion, town of Heracles, and stop at the harbour town of Dion, named after the Greek god Zeus, ancestor of the Macedonian kings, and site of a yearly nine-day festival of the arts in honour of Zeus and the nine Greek Muses. There he would walk through city gates in a wall of brick, down the paved length of a sacred way, between the theatre, gymnasiums and a temple with Doric pillars: suitably, the nearby villages were linked with the myth of Orpheus, the famous bard of Greek legend. He was still in a world of Greek gods and sacrifices, of Greek plays and Greek language, though the natives might speak Greek with a northern accent which hardened 'ch' into 'g', 'th' into 'd' and pronounced King Philip as 'Bilip'. Bearing on up the coast, he would find the plain no less abundant and the towns more defiantly Greek.’

ίσως ο Γκουρού να ανοίξει κανά βιβλίο από Οξφόρδη ή Καίμπριτζ και να διαβάσει τι εθνικότητα ήταν ο Έλληνας Αλέξανδρος Φιλίππου.

Ιδού πως έχει η ανακοίνωση...

Thank you for your patience while we’ve looked into all of this.As we said on Monday, the clip on YouTube is from an episode of Take It Or Leave It from over two years ago.

We want you to understand that we do not want to take sides in any international disagreement
– contrary to lots of the opinions that have been put to us via email and in the web forums.

To be totally clear: we're not trying to promote a cause, or stir up any trouble. We're just an entertainment channel.We do recognise the importance of conducting quizzes fairly though, which is why we’ve gone back and checked our paperwork.

On the question itself, we have looked back at the records, and we are happy that the question and answer were fair and accurate.
As usual, we checked this with two trusted sources. However, one of the main issues you’ve raised is the use of the flag of FYROM to illustrate the question and answer. Having heard many of your arguments on this, and having looked into it ourselves, we can see that this was inaccurate, and confusing for the audience. We unreservedly apologise for any offence that has been caused - that was certainly not our intention.

It is very obvious that this particular question is about ancient history,not modern-day Europe.

Using modern day flags is therefore inappropriate, so we’re going to re-edit this particular episode so that the flags are not shown again.

We hope that this goes a long way to addressing people’s concerns, and completely removes any suggestion that we’re making some kind of political statement. We’re sorry to have got this wrong.

With best wishes,
Challenge


Ελπίζω πάντως να βρεθούν οι παίχτες και να δικαιωθούν. Συνήθως τέτοια λάθη "διορθώνονται" πίσω από τα φώτα της δημοσιότητας.

ΕΝΑ ΜΕΓΑΛΟ ΕΥΧΑΡΙΣΤΩ ΣΕ ΑΥΤΟΥΣ ΠΟΥ ΕΣΤΕΙΛΑΝ ή ΠΡΟΣΠΑΘΗΣΑΝ ΝΑ ΕΠΙΚΟΙΝΩΝΗΣΟΥΝ ΜΕ ΤΟΥΣ ΑΝΕΚΔΙΗΓΗΤΟΥΣ ΑΓΓΛΟΥΣ.
