Those of you attended the MCM London Expo last weekend may have noticed that the BBC were filming footage of cosplayers there. Well they weren't filming for nothing, as a segment on cosplay appeared on the recent episode of weekly BBC entertainment show E24.

To view the coverage, click the link and watch from 8:20 onwards.

It is encouraging to see that BBC approached this without pre-conception, as opposed to the recent Sunday Telegraph article on AyaCon which had a cynical undertone. Hopefully the BBC will return to the MCM Expo in October and give the world of cosplay more exposure.
