The protest among British spectators for the coverage given in recent days by the BBC of the news on the death of Prince Philip

, 99-year-old consort of Queen Elizabeth who died on Friday in Windsor Castle, and the changes in the schedules introduced to make room for commemorations and praise of the deceased.

The Sun reports it among others.

The top of the BBC does not confirm the figure for its part, although admitting that the phenomenon appears at record levels for the number of complaints received by the public broadcaster in its history.

He adds that he had to make available an ad hoc online form to collect the mass of complaints over the weekend, although he specified that from Monday this "is no longer necessary as the wave has started to subside".

On the other hand, the television network defends its choices as an act due to a historical figure of the Kingdom and to the interest of the majority of the population;

not without underlining the massive space dedicated to the event and to the memory of the prince by the other main British networks as well as by newspapers: tabloids and otherwise.

Among those who protest there are those (a minority) who complain of the excess of zeal towards the royal house;

and those (most) who cannot bear the postponements or the cancellation of TV series and light entertainment programs due in recent days to the programming changes imposed by the 'Philp time' on practically all the major BBC channels.
