BBC’s Prince Philip coverage breaks UK TV complaints record
Jim Waterson Media editor
Mon, 12 April 2021, 5:39 pm
The BBC’s wall-to-wall coverage of Prince Philip’s death has become the most complained-about moment in British television history, as viewers expressed their annoyance that shows such as EastEnders and MasterChef were replaced with royal tributes.

At least 110,994 people have contacted the BBC to express their displeasure at the decision to turn most of the corporation’s TV channels and radio stations over to rolling tributes to the Queen’s husband.

BBC One and BBC Two dedicated Friday evening’s programming to Philip, and their ratings fell as viewers switched off altogether, turned to streaming services or watched shows such as Gogglebox on Channel 4.

According to an internal BBC complaints log seen by the Guardian, an unprecedented level of viewer feedback was received over the weekend, meaning the coverage appears to have elicited one of the most negative reactions to BBC programmes ever seen.

One example comment from a member of the public included in the log said: “Coverage of this event took up the entire evening broadcast to the exclusion of all other topics, including the ongoing topic of the pandemic. Some coverage was justified, but not to this extent.”

Another said: “It was sad news Prince Phillip [sic] died on Friday and I understand the BBC had to acknowledge the fact but on every single one of its channels? Why [not] just put it on one channel for those that want to listen to that drivel and the rest of us can have a bit of music.”

Within hours of Philip’s death the number of complaints about the coverage had become so large that the BBC set up a dedicated form in an attempt to streamline the process. This form was then taken down on Sunday, making it harder for people to register their displeasure.

The previous record for BBC complaints is believed to be the 63,000 objections to the 2005 decision to broadcast Jerry Springer: The Opera, following criticism from Christian groups.

The BBC declined to comment on the leaked weekend figures and said a formal announcement would be made as planned on Thursday.

I agree with your sentiments on the 2 programmes mentioned, but all night on all their channels, including 6 music, come on.

Only the BBC would create a form for this one complaint, so it was easier to record the numbers, it’s time this tired old mouthpiece for the liberal elite of London was ended, spending taxpayers money on c***s like Lineker and Shearer on a combined salary of £3million. Have a look at the salaries of newscaster, on average between £250k and £500k p.a. It simply ridiculous.
Boris is decriminalising not paying for the BBC thought police to tell the hard of thinking that the EU is like Babylon and the Police are racist facist scum, they take endless opportunities to stir up racial hatred with coverage of BLM protest over some criminal who was murdered by a foreign old bill.
I say fcuk the BBC don’t pay your licensing fee and save £150 simple.

Appreciate your initiative to use that bastion of left minded news ‘The Guardian’. What you fail to mention is that the viewing figures dwarf the complaints particularly the Week End figures. Regrettably the media will be subtlety deaf if viewing figures are good. Bit like Astra Seneca Vacine!

Completely agree I don’t see the point of putting the same programming at the same time on both tv channels. There is a big enough proportion of people against or indifferent to the royal family (with that only growing as years pass) that people should have been given a choice.

It was an opinion based purely on entertainment value!
I understand that he was all but an unofficial joint head of state but agree the wall to wall coverage was OTT.

Watch Russian Doll on Netflix instead.

It did feel strange that the TV stations replicated the same broadcast, as did all BBC radio stations on the day with 'chill out' music the following day.
I'm sure the country will shut down when the Queen passes.
There always seems to be a dominant thread in the news these days, whether it was Brexit, Covid or now this.

Does anyone know where you can find the form to complain that there wasn’t enough coverage?

You don't half come out with some strange comments Evers. How do you determine that Winslow doesn't have a partner and what's it got to do with anything anyway???

They have already taken it down. I haven't watched one single second of the coverage, just not interested. In fact I don't watch the news at all, apart from whats happening on here of course. If I want to know whats going on in the world I will look on line.

As for the BBC it should either be abolished or they should become a subscription channel like Netflix. It used to be the finest broadcasting corporation in the world, now it must be one of the worst.

I would say ‘The vast outpouring of HRH comments’ come from the old. Thanks for worrying everbrite but not too many of the younger generation glued to the tv, well not to watch the coverage.

Grin

All they seemed (the Media) to find is kids laying flowers and ex D of Edin Awards people with one young bloke saying how it changed him for the better. Regarding mainly old people commenting not to sure about that, as once again particularly the Media seem to capture the not so old doing the homage! Lot of support will come from the Armed Services incl ex services personnel. Don't think you can generalize as there is too much evidence of a broad swell of support. Just my opinion; said the Bishop to the Actress!
