BBC launches probe into Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em over homophobic slur
Quote:
The Christmas special, which aired in 1975, saw Frank working as a pixie in a festive department store grotto.

However, the language used in the episode has raised concerns, with the BBC investigating the series now.

The scene sees Frank say: "I'm the chief of the pixies, I'm the friend of all the little boys and girls."

A boy turned to the character and heckled: "Oh no you're not, you're a p**f."

"I beg your pardon, block your ears!" Frank replies in the scene.

The episode was recently repeated on BBC Two, which prompted a complaint from a viewer, leading to an investigation from the internal watchdog.
Although I don't think that homophobic insult has any place in current TV broadcasts, a full internal investigation from one complaint seems a bit excessive.

Only one person complained.

Who knows, maybe they were genuinely shocked and offended by the BBC broadcasting the word.

I'm more concerned that Saturday Night Takeaway is popular.

I know it's a bit of an arty magazine, but BFI's Sight & Sound is all about Video Nasties in the next issue, with writing from Kermode and Newman, and pretty nice artwork on the front

Looks pretty good. Any idea which day it's out?

Having quality journo's write about the nasties will be a breath of fresh air compared to the usual tripe.
