A trailer for the BBC’s coverage of the Six Nations tournament was binned for being too anti-English.
The video has now surfaced on social networks and is being shared widely.
It begins showing Welsh, Scottish, Irish and Italian fans shouting out the word England.
The twist is that the fans are shouting about the team they most want to lose.
It concludes with a group of English fans who appear unable to agree on which team they would like to lose.
Fearing the film was ‘unbalanced’ the BBC re-edited it to make it less so.
A BBC spokeswoman is reported as saying: "The creative concept for the Six Nations trail was around fans being united in rivalry.
"We featured real fans from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland in the trail all talking about who they wanted to beat.
"The non- English fans interviewed for the trail all wanted to beat England which made the first cut of the trail slightly unbalanced.
"We therefore changed the balance of the fans in the next edit to make the trail more representative."
