The BBC did not like this sketch. According to the article on Wikipedia, they agreed to let Python do it as long as the studio audience booed during the sketch and rushed the set at the end of the sketch. Really? The article makes it sound like it was the BBC’s idea to have the heckling and the rushing at the end. I can see the BBC objecting to the sketch but I would think it was Chapmen and Cleese, who wrote the sketch, suggesting the audience interruptions and not the BBC.
