BBC Apologizes For Remarks On Quiz Program Concerning Double A-Bomb Survivor

The BBC has apologized for the poor taste of celebrity participants on the quiz show QI, who joked after answering a question about the dropping of the two atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. The question involved the fact that one man happened to be in both cities and survived the bombings. The celebs made jokes at his expense; the Japanese Embassy in London protested the remarks as did others who heard the show or heard about the incident. More here from the BBC News.
