BLACKADDER and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are the latest BBC shows to carry a “woke” disclaimer warning of discriminatory jokes.
Rowan Atkinson’s Blackadder — first aired in 1983 — uses one derogatory term for a Spaniard and one for black people.

The disclaimer before the comedy says: “Contains discriminatory language which some viewers may find offensive.”
The same was also placed on 2020’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion episode.
Rebecca Ryan, Campaign Director, at Defund the BBC, said: “The corporation is clearly committed to only representing the third of the country who support these moves whilst expecting the rest of us to keep paying.
“The BBC is pressing on with ‘campaign woke’, which will only hurry along the inevitable.”

The BBC said: “It’s to tell viewers when a show includes something that may be offensive, inappropriate or outdated.”
The Sun revealed last week how British comedy favourite The Royle Family was hit with the same disclaimer.
It came as Ricky Tomlinson’s character – couch potato Jim – called Laurence Llewelyn Bowen a “nancy boy” during one episode.
