Question:

What was the first tv show to use swear words?

Answer:

The closest match I have for that is Kenneth Tynan being the first to say the f-word on television in 1965. It was on the BBC.

More Info:

Kenneth Peacock Tynan (2 April 1927 – 26 July 1980) was an English theatre critic and writer.

Making his initial impact as a critic at The Observer (1954–58, 1960–63), he praised Osborne's Look Back in Anger (1956), and encouraged the emerging wave of British theatrical talent. In 1963, Tynan was appointed as the new National Theatre Company's literary manager. An opponent of theatre censorship, he was considered by many to be the first person to say 'fuck' on British television (although this is now disputed) which was controversial at the time. Later in his life, he settled in California where he resumed his writing career.

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.

Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
