That doesn't explain ITV cancelling a +1 repeat of Benidorm which mentioned Rolf Harris and apologising for showing the episode at all.

The BBC is not responsible for the crimes of its employees.

They've got closure from the guilty verdicts. Time to move on. Erasing history is not necessary as well.

Such warnings are not necessary. What harm can a reference to a convicted person do to anyone? They can't abuse any more people simply by being mentioned. Bad things happen. At least in this case the...

Whatever else he was he wasn't blind or stupid, so he can't have failed to notice "Mrs Merton" was not an old lady and was an act. Anyway Eubank made great play of being a gentleman and would never...

This isn't North Korea. We shouldn't airbrush people out of history. Half of old TV won't make any sense if we do.

That isn't a highlights programme. It's a rerun in full of one of the two games. That's why it goes on that long.

Well he has to mean it this time. Each previous offence has meant a longer punishment. Next time would have to be at least a years ban. No team could support a liability like that. So in effect he is...

The current England squad is stronger than it's been for years. There are a couple of weaknesses in defence which ruin the balance.

If all the humour was based on national stereotypes then it might be a bad influence. But it wasn't. A lot of it is very well written farce, as was Fawlty Towers.

Players have always kicked other players. It was far worse in the much less commercial 1960s and 70s. The extraordinary thing Cantona did was to jump into the stand and kick out at a spectator. Why...
