How far should TV shows push humour?
The BBC has apologised for remarks made on the television programme, Top Gear, that caused outrage in Mexico. Have you ever complained about a TV programme?
In a letter to Mexico's ambassador in London, the BBC said it was sorry if the comments had offended some people, but said jokes based on national stereotyping were part of British national humour.
Stephen Fry has also courted controversy and had a documentary series in Japan shelved after complaints about nuclear bomb jokes in his quiz show "QI". The Japanese Embassy accused the BBC of making light of the attacks, which killed up to 250,000 civilians.
Is there a line that humour just should not cross? Are there subjects off-limits for humour?
