Outrage over TV programme that was just people dressing up in Nazi uniforms

11-09-17

THERE has been widespread outcry after it emerged that an 80s television programme was mostly just people dressing up as Nazis.

Following a furore over baker Paul Hollywood dressing up as a Nazi in 2003, it emerged that a long-running BBC series featured dozens of actors dressed as members of Hitler’s army.

A source said: “The programme was called ‘Hello, Hello!’ if you use the pronunciation that does not racially stereotype the French.

“The Nazis were shown in a comic context, usually in situations involving double entendres and someone’s surname sounding a bit like ‘knob’ or ‘fanny’.

“Apparently it was on television for several years, presumably offending millions on a weekly basis.

“It should be banned even though it ended in 1992.”

Meanwhile TV baker Paul Hollywood defended his choice of Nazi uniform fancy dress: “It was just a bit of fun. Mary Berry was actually head of the Waffen-SS during the war and nobody bothers about that.”
