Forgive me for saying simply that I don't believe anything in your memo is half so relevant as the (to me) plain fact that wherever precisely the rights and wrongs might be in the matter in a community of infinitely greater kindness and consideration than, unfortunately, ours is, this protest as things are does much more harm than good. David Hendy, Professor of Media and Cultural History at the University of Sussex, comments that Barrie Thorne, the corporation's chief accountant, described the series in an internal memo to Director of Television Kenneth Adam in 1962 as being "a disgrace and an insult to coloured people". To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The Corporation’s Chief Accountant, Barrie Thorne – who, significantly, had spent some time in the BBC’s New York office and so had seen something of the Civil Rights movement – argued vociferously for the show to be pulled from the schedule. The response Thorne received from the Chief Assistant, Oliver Whitley, was no doubt intended to come across as measured.

Regardless of country of origin all tracks are sung in English, unless otherwise stated in our description. It’s unlikely that what he had in mind was The Black and White Minstrel Show itself employing black British artistes. We very believe in this project and we also believe that the Pet Therapy should be accessible free of charge. The theatrical tradition of the show could then be measured against the histicial background and the continued fight against segregation going on in the United States, here, and elsewhere in the world. The West Indian businessman Lloyd Squires was recorded in Flamingo stating, ‘No one whom I know likes it.
