Sensitive BBC brings back it Ain’t Half Hot Mum

The BBC is so worried about its shows causing offense that it is bringing back wholesome family series It Ain’t Half Hot Mum.

Starring Windsor Davies and a white man dressed up as an Indian servant, the show is guaranteed to have no racist inferences and undertones whatsoever.

Set in India, it features the fortunes of a British Army concert party – known fondly as the “boys to entertain you”.

As well as challenging racial stereotypes in a restrained way, befitting of today’s woke British sensitivity, the cult show – which had 15 million viewers at its peak in the 1970s – also references “pooftahs” regularly.

BBC insider Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “As a nation, we are re-examining our past and have become increasingly angry about anything non-PC.

“To ensure we get the tone of our output right, we are re-running It Ain’t Half Hot Mum on prime time BBC 1, Saturday nights.

“We also have plans to bring back Alf Garnett – he won’t hurt anyone’s feelings.”

Meanwhile, Nelson’s Column will be moved to Great Yarmouth to save it being torn down.
