The BBC warning said: “Contains discriminatory language which some viewers may find offensive.”
And the broadcaster defended their decision to do this, telling Mail Online at the time: “We want classic shows and series on BBC iPlayer.
“Attitudes and language change over time and our approach, just like other streaming services, is to tell viewers when a show includes something that may be offensive, inappropriate or outdated and because some people aren’t offended, it doesn’t mean that others aren’t.”
Meanwhile, Rebecca Ryan, the campaign director at Defund the BBC, told The Sun: “The corporation is clearly committed to only representing the third of the country who support these moves whilst expecting the rest of us to keep paying.
“The BBC is pressing on with ‘campaign woke’, which will only hurry along the inevitable.”
