Michael Grade on Room 101

In 2002 Michael Grade appeared on BBC2's Room 101. During a discussion about how, as BBC1 controller, Grade axed beauty contests in a political correctness kick, host Paul Merton asks him about his 1984 ruling that BBC1's Christmas snowmen had to be "neutral". The result was that one of the snowmen in the ident ended up being a snow-woman, complete with feminine curves – as demonstrated by an archive clip.
