BBC apologises for Halo logo slip-up

"Occasionally mistakes do happen"

The BBC has apologised for mistakenly broadcasting an emblem from the Halo games and representing it as the logo of the United Nations.


In its News at One show last Thursday, the Beeb used a graphic for the fictional United Nations Space Council (UNSC) during a report on the conflict in Syria.

The broadcaster has since said in a statement, "very occasionally mistakes do happen".

"BBC News makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all images broadcast, however very occasionally mistakes do happen," it said in a statement given to Eurogamer.

"Unfortunately an incorrect logo was used during a segment on last week's News at One bulletin and we apologise to viewers for the mistake. The image was not broadcast in our later bulletins."
