The Good Life given viewer warning for featuring a 'racist' Robertson’s jam Golly badge

TAME TV comedy The Good Life has been given a viewer warning for featuring a “racist” Robertson’s jam Golly badge.

The 1970s show starring Felicity Kendal, 74, and the late Richard Briers, was known for its gentle humour.

But ITV and BBC streaming service Britbox thinks one scene could be offensive.

Series four episode Away from it All has Penelope Keith, 81, who plays snobby Margot, wearing an apron featuring the black-faced logo.

Now viewers are told the episode “contains offensive racial imagery”.

Britbox said: “We review our catalogue on an ongoing basis.”

Robertson’s, which always insisted the Golly character was not racist, ditched it in 2002.

Customers used to be able to collect tokens on jars of fruit preserves for Golly merchandise and by the end of the 20th century more than 20 million dolls had been sent out.

Robertson's jam disappeared in 2008 when owner Premier Foods decided to focus solely on its Golden Shred Marmalade, the very first product cooked up in the Robertson family kitchen more than 150 years ago.
