We live in a multicultural democratic society and in a  year fraught with global protests about the systemic mistreatment and subjugation of Black people, we have to now see the BBC flagrantly use racist language that has been historically used to oppress and denigrate Black people. 

There is never any excuse for the BBC or any other media outlet to be pedalling and perpetuating these terms on television. It comes as attempt to normalise using the “N word”, by simply providing a meaningless and condescending ‘warning’ before using these profanities on television (twice in a week). Adding to this, these reports have had to undergo some sort of oversight/approval before being published and shown on television.

This means that it is not just the actions of Lucy Worsley or Fiona Lamdin but also their teams and everyone that allowed this to make the final broadcast, needs to be held accountable.

It is clear that this is no mistake and a simple apology will not do. We have seen the recent actions against hate against other groups in society and applaud the quick reaction and move to suspend twitter accounts and potential employment opportunities for these perpetrators, but we need to know that black lives matter in this same respect and we need accountability and action immediately on the part of the BBC. 


Black people should not be made to feel subhuman or as if they are not valid members of our society.

Regardless of race, ethnicity, gender - slurs that denigrate and attempt to disempower people should never been used and especially in a nationally broadcast report/programme. There is no excuse for this.

We require an investigation into these 2 different incidence involving Lucy Worsley and Fiona Lamdin and all the staff involved in the final approval of these unacceptable reports to be undertaken and published. Additionally we require the BBC to commit to never using these terms again.
