Following the recent judgement in the European Court of Human Rights establishing the "right to be forgotten", requests have flooded in for the BBC and other channels to be forced to wipe out all record of children's programmes in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Said one petitioner, David Norris of Grantham, "It's become increasingly difficult for me to talk to my grandchildren of the dangers of today's television or indeed recall any memory of watching television as a child without feelings of guilt and shame. That's why we are calling for the wiping of all episodes of Jim'll Fix It, Rolf on Saturday or shows featuring the Bay City Rollers".
"Once these vile programmes are wiped once and for all", continued Mr Norris, "my explanation to my grandkids about not having TV when I was young and us gathering around the fire with the family to watch the corner of the room will seem plausible. Besides which, only the rich kids had TV in the seventies, where they would watch the Test Card for hours on end waiting for the killer next move in the tic-tac-toe competition "
"We've also asked for 'Big Break' to be wiped as well, not because Jim Davidson has done anything wrong, but because it's Jim Davidson"
