BBC terror for brand + Ross's 15 minuits of fun!

After recording the calls it was a further two days until the show was aired, giving time to think about what had bin said and cut out the insulting parts of the calls. This they did not do, the show was aired on a Saturday morning with a small minority of the public viewers listening, there was 80 complaints after the show as not many people were listening. The guardien wrote an article on this the following day which led to there being a further 42, 000 complaints. Yes what they did was bad but at the end of the day they apologised to Andrew Sachs but the media still found it nesacerry to completley blow it out of proportion and creat havvoc for the BBC.
