Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

BBC bosses are said to be outraged at a Teletubby PC game where players gun down and murder the cuddly characters. Tubbie Terror shows Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po as you've never seen them before. Players can download the game from the Web for free and spend time flouncing around Tellytubby land looking for Po and blasting her with a sub-machine gun. When Po is hit, Tinky Winky is seen muttering expletives and saying "You killed my brother". Which is odd because, as every Teletubby fan knows, Po is a girl-tubby. One site with the downloadable game shows the fluffy creations being squashed by a plunger, being burnt and their bones crumbling, or with their heads exploding. Tubby blood seems to be a big factor in these online antics. The game is going down especially well with the Germans and Dutch for some reason. So well in fact that a sequel, Laa Laa Strikes Back, has also been put on the Net. The BBC is fuming at the rip offs. "As well as being inappropriate, this is a clear infringement of BBC copyright. We will be taking action against those responsible," a BBC representative told today's Metro. All you sickos out there can download Tubbie Terror here. ® Related stories Say Eh-Oh to PlayStation Warner threatens Harry Potter fan sites
