Is it? I mean really? Are we actually at the point where we simply can't abide someone saying a word we don't like on telly without it being 'a serious issue'?

No. It really, really isn't. It may be against BBC standard policies and disciplinary codes. But an offence? As in a criminal offence? Not in the slightest.

And even if it was, we come back to the...

Yes, but for the vast majority of that there was probably only one or two other channels to watch and the VCR hadn't been invented yet.

So what you're saying is, if people stop watching a telly show, the BBC will stop making it? Thank you for that startlingly incisive media analysis.
