THE BBC has created a targeted online form to allow people to complain about “too much TV coverage” of the death of Prince Philip.

The broadcaster halted normal broadcasting across “all networks” yesterday to allow for special news coverage of the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing.

BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Scotland, BBC News, and BBC Alba were broadcasting identical feeds through the afternoon. This news special continued through the night across all five of those channels.

On radio, many of the BBC’s stations were also broadcasting the same feed, although some normal programming seems to have resumed across those networks.

Now, the corporation has added a bespoke banner to its complaints page, allowing people to more easily register their dissatisfaction with the high amount of coverage of the duke’s death.

The banner reads: “Death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - too much coverage on BBC TV.

“We're receiving complaints about too much TV coverage of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

“To register a complaint without having to complete our webform or provide any details - apart from your email address (which we’ll use to send you our response) - visit this BBC Complaints Page.”

The final words are hyperlinked to another page where entering an email address is enough to register a complaint with the BBC on the topic.

Registering a complaint is normally a much longer process, involving at least three steps and asking people to write up to 2000 characters explaining their issue.

The BBC releases fortnightly reports outlining the number of complaints they received around any single topic which more than 100 people took issue with.

The last report was issued on April 1, covering March 15 to March 28.

The corporation has been contacted for comment.
