A 300-ft-wide eye logo advertising Channel 4's "Big Brother" program has been painted next to the famous Uffington Chalk Horse, enraging local residents. Local residetns of Uffinton, Oxfordshire have "warned the incident could trigger a local uprising" according to archaeologists. Channel 4, a British television network, recently painted a 300-ft eye logo next to the famous Uffington chalk horse to publicize its Big Brother television show. A spokesman for the show promised that the logo would be hosed off the following Monday, but residents wondered how the National Trust could have given permission for the stunt.
