There was a time when British television bosses were extremely sensitive to the dangers of appearing to be partisan, even obliquely, during a general election. In 1979, for example, the BBC cancelled a screening of the Boulting brothers’ classic satire on strikes and industrial relations, I’m All Right Jack. Even though it was made in 1959, it was still sufficiently topical that it was fared the portrayal of greedy trade unionists and venal bosses would skew the campaign in some way, especially as those very issues were central to the political debate. Peter Sellers did some of his best work in it, by the way, as the McCluskey-esque shop steward Fred Kite.More tangentially the BBC cancelled the sixth series of The Apprentice that was due to be screened during the 2010 contest, because Alan Sugar had links to the government (he was Labour then), and there was a “risk to impartiality”.
