Too much swear­ing

YOURS (UK) - - Get In Touch - Rose­mary Hand­scomb, by email

I so agree with a re­cent reader’s let­ter about too much bad lan­guage in films and on TV in gen­eral. Most peo­ple don’t speak this way in real life, so why do the writ­ers of these pro­grammes as­sume we all want to lis­ten to it? We even had to switch off a pe­riod drama we’d been look­ing for­ward to be­cause it was pep­pered with strong lan­guage. My hus­band wrote to the BBC, but re­ceived a re­ply ba­si­cally say­ing we don’t have to watch it if we don’t like it.
