David Quinn: What did we lose when we cast off our sexual taboos?
THE 'Late Late Show' celebrates its 50th anniversary tonight and what's the betting there will be a reference to The Bishop and the Nightie Affair?
That took place in 1966, early on in the show's run. Most people know the story, but briefly, Gaybo was interviewing recently married couples and asked one woman if she remembered what she wore on her wedding night.
To general laughter she replied that she mightn't have worn anything at all. Outraged by this display of 'prurience' a bishop contacted the show to tell it he was "disgusted with (such a) disgraceful performance".
