BBC in new fakery row as show made by Richard Branson's son's firm showed 'partying alcohol-ravaged Aborigines' who were actually at a WAKE 

The BBC was last night dragged into a new fakery row after a documentary about Australian aborigines 'ravaged by alcohol addiction' misled viewers by pretending to show a 'party scene' which was actually a wake.

An episode of Hidden Australia presented by Reggie Yates showed mourners having a few drinks and some food after the death of a friend.

But to fit with the show's agenda, producers described it as a 'party scene' after they panicked when they realised they didn't have enough footage of drinking.
