BBC RADIO 4 has apologized for airing a play about a murderer the day after the CUMBRIA shootings.
"Six Impossible Things," a play based on a Danish murder in the 1950's, aired THURSDAY, the day after 12 people died in a rampage by cab driver DERRICK BIRD. The station received 66 complaints about the broadcast and issued an apology for the broadcast.
ITV postponed the current episodes of longrunning soap opera "CORONATION STREET" because of the Cumbrian tragedy due to a previously-produced plot line that included the shooting deaths of characters.
