It's bad enough that we have the Internet as one of our main news sources which can easily be scrubbed or altered - now they are even reaching back into TV history and messing with it.

Soon, if not already, you won't be able to believe what you see or read as being original. It is ridiculous to alter Fawlty Towers! It's comedy!

LOL! Hilarious! There are soooo many racial slurs in the ENTIRE series they'd have to ban it!

It's a fab piece of historical comedy and to try to 'politically correct' it would ruin the humour - goes to show how far society has come to being so sensitive to a bit of light humour.

Winston Smith works as a clerk in the Records Department of the Ministry of Truth, where his job is to rewrite historical documents so they match the constantly changing current party line.

Re: OMG!!! BBC rewrites TV history with Fawlty Towers censorship (it's too racist)!!!
So what are they going to do about 'Love thy Neighbour' and 'Rising Damp' and the biggest most racist of all 'Steptoe and Son'?

Although for those who read semantically, a peep behind the symbolism of the narrative shows the authors were actually exposing the ignorance of racism, the language is shocking. That is what is being attacked.

This in my opinion demonstrates that the Winston Smiths of contemporary arts are really ignorant of what the art itself is trying to do.
