Now BBC plans an ‘I love the C-word’ documentary

`The BBC came under new fire after it announced plans for a £200,000 TV documentary devoted to the most offensive word in the English language.

The programme – tentatively titled I love The C-Word – is billed as examining why the word has become more mainstream in recent years. [..]

Both the BBC and North One claimed it will not be sensationalist. A spokeswoman for the programme said: “It will look at how a word that was considered completely unacceptable has moved into the mainstream, particularly by younger people. The tone will be a serious exploration of the word.”‘
