OH NO! Not the BBC as well!

I saw a piece on the BBC 10 o'clock news last about supplying new helicopters to the troop-effort in Afghanistan and couldn't believe my eyes as the graphics for the numbers and types of aircraft contained the loathsome "grocer's apostrophe": Merlin's, Chinook's etc. Good grief! Were all the literate staff at the BBC too busy panicking about cancelling phone-in competitions to proof-read the captions on their flagship news programme?

Has anybody checked whether there are still ravens at the Tower of London?
