Banned by the BBC - BBC 4

This is a most interesting programmes - i can sort of imagine some of George Formby's & Gracie Fields' songs being banned BUT Bing Crosby ? apparently during the War some of his songs were thought of as "sickly sentimental " What a surprise ! the programme covers music from the 1930's up until to - day so has a wide range

I liked this programme but some ofthe "talking heads" are rather annoying - but that's typical of modern TV i'm afraid

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
