In September 2014, the BBC apologised for transmitting footage of Jimmy Savile
on the programme on BBC2 on 13 September following seven viewer complaints. The BBC statement read: "Unfortunately this brief appearance was missed. It was removed from iPlayer as soon as we were made aware and replaced with a re-edited version. Although all programmes are reviewed before broadcast, unfortunately this brief appearance was missed. We apologise for any distress caused." See more
