In George Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language” what is the “B.B.C. Timidity”?

Thank you.

    That probably refers to the British Broadcasting Company, which Orwell apparently believes is conservative and afraid to tackle tough issues.

    Thank you.

    Would Orwell's reference to the 17th century Shelley perhaps be the author of Frankenstein?
