“BBC defends Muslim beheading,” from Teletext (thanks to Joel):
Exclusive by Derek Robins – BBC bosses have defended the grisly beheading of a Muslim by a Christian zealot in new drama Bonekickers.
In the bloody scene, ex-EastEnder Paul Nicholls plays a fundamentalist who decapitates a Muslim with a sword.
Producer Rhonda Smith said: “It’s not meant to be shocking or to cause offence and it comes very much from the storyline.”
