Looks like its time for some new researchers....what a dumbass.

The family of Bob Marley was left shocked recently, when a journalist asked for an interview with the reggae legend - nearly a quarter of a century after he died.

In an email sent to the Bob Marley Foundation, the BBC requested the star's presence for "one or two days" for a forthcoming hour-long show focusing on his smash single No Woman, No Cry.

The online request, made by a BBC researcher, said the documentary "would only work with some participation from Bob Marley himself", despite the fact the famous musician passed away from cancer aged 36 in 1981.

A Marley family insider says: "We didn't think there was anyone on the planet who didn't realise Bob Marley passed away years ago."

A BBC spokesman says: "We're very embarrassed. This is not an April Fool (joke)."
