It used to be that swearing was on the BBC only after the 9pm watershed, but not now. It’s there on Radio 4 in the evening. In fact, no one had used the ‘F’ word on British TV until 1965, when theatre critic Kenneth Tyan said it during a live broadcast. It resulted in four motions in the Houses of Parliament and an apology from the BBC!
