The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has announced that it will in future not commission shows which only have white actorsand that a show like the comedy Monty Python would be shunned because it was made up of white blokes.

BBC head of comedy Shane Allen told media in Britain that program featuring six Oxbridge white blokes were no longer of interest to viewers who crave sketch shows and sitcoms with a sense of place.

Oxbridge is a UK reference to graduates from Oxford and Cambridge universities.

Speaking as the BBC unveiled a raft of new comedies starring female and nonwhite leads, Allen claimed audiences had seen enough of the metropolitan, educated experience.

He cited BBC Three sketch show Famalam, which has an all-black cast, as an example of how the corporation was giving a platform to new talent 50 years after Monty Python, which he described as a producer-led gang show.

Allen said: If were going to assemble a team now its not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes, its going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world and have got something to say thats different and we havent seen before.

In 2016, the producer of the BBCs Dr, Who show, Steven Moffat, was quoted in an interview as saying that that corporation intended to lie deliberately about Britains history to pretend that nonwhites played a role in the countrys past.

Telling the BBC that the Dr. Who show must find new ways to get ethnic minority actors on screen in future, he said that Sometimes the nature of a particular showhistorical dramas, for instancemakes diversity more of a challenge.

Weve kind of got to tell a lie. Well go back into history and there will be black people where, historically, there wouldnt have been, and we wont dwell on that.

Well say, To hell with it, this is the imaginary, better version of the world. By believing in it, well summon it forth.

* In the Monty Python film The Life of Brian, one scene made fun of a man wanting to be a woman. In terms of todays mentally ill transgender nonsense, this scene would undoubtedly result in an uproar.
