Royal wedding: ABC forced to cancel satirical show

Australia’s ABC broadcaster has had to cancel its satirical royal wedding special after being told footage could not be used for “comedy purposes”.

The programme, which was due to be aired on ABC2, featured the well-known comedy team The Chaser.

Contractual restrictions bar comedy and entertainment programmes from using live footage of the ceremony.

The comedians have now written to Buckingham Palace asking for what they call a “stay of execution”.
