Very sad news. However this is another case of one rule for one and another rule for another. The BBC and others are glossing over the fact that he spent time in jail over sexual activity with a minor, whereas DLT, Glitter, Harris and Stuart Hall are ostracized and written out of history (exccept when it comes to their crimes)

So we live in hope JK. Perhaps if you live long enough, (e.g. to say, 100), the BBC will also "forget" why it's banned you and will allow plenty of obituaries and play all your old Top Of The Pops appearances!

Yes; hope lives eternal, which is more than we do. I'm hoping that I'll get as much airplay as Chuck has done when I pass away (I've certainly sold many more records than he did).

Not forgetting that BBC have no issue of playing Elvis or Jerry Lee Lewis.

I wonder if they show some Chaplin films in the near future ?

No reason why they shouldn't show Chaplin films. He was never accused of anything dodgy, unless you are believe internet rumours.
