BBC chief's apology to Jonathan King for writing him out of pop history
Sex offender Jonathan King has forced the BBC into a humiliating apology after he was cut out of a repeat of Top Of The Pops. The corporation has been screening 1976 editions of the show on BBC Four. King appeared in April of that year with his hit It Only Takes A Minute, which reached No 9 in the charts. However, his appearance was cut from the re-run for fear of offending viewers – a decision which King described as a 'Stalinist revision of history'.
