Some felt the Eurosceptic had been allowed “too much airtime” over recent years on programmes including Daily Politics and Question Time.
The complainers argued the BBC granting the MEP a platform for his views to become “normalised”.

They helped normalise his views
An Editor from the corporation hit back at the claims, insisting Mr Farage was an elected politician and was used alongside guests from a wide range of parties.
During the Friday episode of Newswatch, two disgruntled viewers put forward why they believed he should be blocked from BBC programming.
The first alleged Mr Farage had caused an increase in xenophobia by being included on the impartial broadcaster.
The viewers said the BBC was "normalising" Nigel Farage's views
The man said: “His constant appearance on TV and radio are a major contribution I think to the rise of anti-immigrant sentiment in this country over the last few years.
“I think it’s time the BBC recognises that Nigel Farage isn’t just some politician that you wheel on to give a microphone to when somebody says something nice about refugees – he is a rallying point.”
Another chipped in: “The BBC treats Nigel Farage as good box office, giving him photo opportunities in pubs, hugely disproportionate access to political shows, including Question Time to Daily Politics and much more.

“By doing so and not challenging him, partly because he was treated in the first stages as just good box office or light entertainment, they helped normalise his views.”

Hugh Millborne, Editor of Sunday Politics, defended the decision to include Mr Farage in the corporation’s output.
He said the Ukip politician was “still a person of some influence” with “electoral success”.
“As party leader, he had a track record of political success, for example, his party came first in the European elections in 2014, in the General Election in 2015 the party, in the popular vote, came third, so we aren’t able to exclude him from our programmes.”

Quizzed on whether it was “responsible” to include the Ukip politician because some find his views “offensive,” Mr Millborne said: “We are an impartial broadcaster, there is no evidence that Nigel Farage has said anything that is illegal.
“I don’t think he should be treated any differently from any other politician from any other of the major political parties in the United Kingdom.”
