BBC forced to issue global apology in paid-for-documentaries scandal

The BBC bought these documentaries from PR companies working for governments such as those of Egypt and Malaysia for sums as low as £1. Yes £1 GBP. What did the BBC think was the reason for this rather errmmmm ‘competitive’ price?
