BBC: No More “White Blokes” Shows Like Monty Python Allowed

"Don't worry, your countries won't change."

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has announced that it will in future not commission shows which only have white actors—and that a show like the comedy “Monty Python” would be shunned because it was made up of “white blokes.”

BBC head of comedy Shane Allen told media in Britain that program featuring “six Oxbridge white blokes” were no longer of interest to viewers who “crave sketch shows and sitcoms with a sense of place”.

“Oxbridge” is a UK reference to graduates from Oxford and Cambridge universities.

Speaking as the BBC unveiled a “raft” of new comedies starring female and nonwhite leads, Allen claimed audiences had seen enough of the “metropolitan, educated experience.”

He cited BBC Three sketch show “Famalam,” which has an all-black cast, as an example of how the corporation was giving a platform to new talent 50 years after Monty Python, which he described as a “producer-led gang show.”

Allen said: “If we’re going to assemble a team now it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes, it’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world and have got something to say that’s different and we haven’t seen before.”

In 2016, the producer of the BBC’s “Dr, Who” show, Steven Moffat, was quoted in an interview as saying that that corporation intended to lie deliberately about Britain’s history to pretend that nonwhites played a role in the country’s past.
