Millions of listeners, including children, were left stunned at 8.10am on Friday when Radio 4’s Today programme repeatedly used the words “bullsh**” and “bastards” during a recorded item. The words were spoken to illustrate a report about the abuse aimed at academics  researching chronic fatigue  syndrome or ME.

 The item, introduced with no warning by regular presenter Sarah Montague, said researchers who suggested ME might be a mental illness had been subjected to a hate campaign.

Actors used to read the e-mails from sufferers put strong emphasis on the offensive words.
