Radio 3 producer resigns over Jerry Springer

This is a bit sad. All power to Anthony Pitts, the producer in question, for taking a principled stand (even if I don't agree with those principles), but it's a shame that he felt he should sacrifice his job over a musical.

It's rather more disturbing to read, though, that he had offered his resignation on Friday, before Jerry Springer: the Opera had even been broadcast. Apparently he had to be encouraged to at least watch the programme he was resigning over. This simply confirmed his feelings, but it seems insane that someone should wish to resign from a senior position over alleged offences that they have yet to see for themselves.
