This series suggests a significant change at the BBC. Generally Auntie’s representation of the working class has been shaped within a tradition of liberalism which is supportive of the underdog or sympathetic to those who fall through the welfare state safety net. This series fuels the problems by making racism respectable and writing working class solidarity out of history. It also presages the rise of Thatcher’s children within the media-ocracy. Be warned - Tories at work - Auntie can turn nasty.
