More madness – Faulty Towers gone also

The Guardian reports:

An episode of Fawlty Towers famous for coining the phrase, “Don’t mention the war!” has become the latest “classic” British television programme to be taken down from a BBC-owned streaming service, as broadcasters continue to conduct a reappraisal of old British television content.

The episode of the 1970s sitcom – in which John Cleese as Basil Fawlty goose-steps around a Torquay hotel while shouting the phrase – was recently removed from the BBC-controlled UKTV catch-up service.

What a bunch of cowards. This is arguably the funniest episode of the series.

The culture fascists are winning.

Here’s the episode in full for those who want to enjoy it again. ‘
