Pushing boundaries

The BBC World Service put out a warning to partners and re-broadcasters earlier today, about this weeks' edition of On Background, host by BBC Director of News James Harding and Economist Editor Zanny Minton-Beddoes....

"Warning: This programme contains strong language that may be offensive to stations and listeners. Please contact us for full details."

So I had to listen. All I can find is an indistinct "Holy Shit" in an archive feature, at 48 minutes 14 seconds. Thank heavens the process of referring up matters of taste and decency could be handled in one place, by the boss talking to himself.
