Excellent response from the BBC Director General 8 Years, 10 Months ago  
I hope he is happy for me to post his reply in full...


Dear Jonathan

Thank you for your email. Please accept my apologies for the delay in
replying.

I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy that your performance was
edited out of an episode of Top of the Pops recently repeated on BBC
Four. The BBC's complaints process begins with a response from the
relevant programme makers and I therefore asked my colleagues in BBC
Four to address this matter. Their response is as follows:

"We are sorry that Mr King's appearance was edited out of this
particular programme. We accept that this should not have happened and
we would like to apologise for any upset this caused.

We can assure Mr King that there is no policy in place requiring any of
his appearances, or those of any one else, to be removed from repeats we
show on the channel. We can also assure Mr King that his performance
will not be edited out of any future repeat of this particular episode
of Top of the Pops."

I hope this response is helpful, but please come back to me if there are
any further points you wish to raise and I will ensure that these are
dealt with in accordance with our complaints process. I want to join
BBC Four in apologising for this incorrect decision.

Best wishes

Mark Thompson
Director General
BBC

Let's hope they stick to their word. If I ran the BBC I'd have JK's flashing at the start of Vile Pervert as the new BBC 1 ident.

Actually you could have them for the loss of earnings from the sales that would have been generated from your appearances!

Its nice that they have decided not to edit you out of future totp episodes. However, did you appear on any episodes after October 1976, if not then the reply is an empty promise.
