"Times have changed"

Little Britain has been removed from Netflix, NOW TV and iPlayer after coming under fire over the use of blackface in some of its sketches.

The BBC said it had made the decision to remove the show as "times have changed" since the comedy first aired in 2003.

Little Britain has faced criticism in recent years for its portrayal of black and Asian characters by white men (David Walliams and Matt Lucas) with characters including a Caribbean woman called Desiree and a mail-order bride named Ting Tong.

 

It’s the season to make documentaries! Garth Brooks documentary is currently going down a storm on Netflix, there’s a David Gray documentary on RTE tomorrow night and now, we’ve learned that Phil Lynott: Songs for While I'm Away will be released in Irish cinemas in the Autumn.

The film tells the story of Lynott growing up in Dublin, his international success with Thin Lizzy and his tragic death as a result of heart failure and pneumonia at the age of 36 in January 1986.
