Carrott Canned

I was watching 24 Carrott Gold yesterday, a show I’ve not seen for years, but one which I recorded on VHS and watched a lot of. The broadcast version was a good half an hour shorter than the released version though, so there were bits of it that I hadn’t seen before. I think one such bit was when he talked about being sued by an MP.

Here’s what he said on the show Carrott Confidential, which aired on January 31st 1987.

And here’s the BBC’s apology that aired a week later on 7th February.

This incident was mentioned in most of the published obitutaries of Denzil Davies.

Here’s an excellent piece by Ben Baker, looking in detail at the opening title sequence of the show through its entire run.
