History of the BBC: Comedy and Satire

In 1948, the BBC published its now infamous 'Green Book', a set of guidelines for writers and producers of comedy. According to the preface, 'Programmes must at all cost be kept free of crudities, coarseness and innuendo. Humour must be clean and untainted directly or by association with vulgarity and suggestiveness.' On that basis, and had BBC writers and producers stuck rigidly to these guidelines, some of the great comedy classics would never have seen the light of day.
