BBC on Germany

The relationship between Brits and Germans seems very much normal today, yet the reporting of Germany on British news is pretty awkward. For instance, this week a popular article was one about a couple of brother and sister who have children together (ie incest) living in East Germany. Another story reports about a trial involving a neo-Nazi burning Anne Frank's diary. There would be no problem if these stories would be as popular as stories about German politics, culture or sports. But they are not, the odd perversity from Germany seems more interesting than real life.
