Approximately 2,000 of the 2,868 complaints about this programme were received following coverage about the performances in a daily national newspaper. The newspaper coverage reported on concerns that the performances were too explicit for a family programme, and included a number of still images of the performances. However, from a comparison of the images it is clear that the photographs that were published in the newspaper were significantly more graphic and close-up than the material that had been broadcast in the programme, and had been taken from a different angle to the television cameras. Readers of the newspaper would have therefore been left with the impression that the programme contained significantlymore graphic material than had actually been broadcast
So the Mail responds now with pictures taken from the actual video of the show, plus withering copy from Michael Seamark and Liz Thomas ("This is what OFCOM calls 'acceptable'") - plus a box attack on Ofcom's Ed Richards, its chief executive - sorry, that should read - "Blair crony boss on £380k a year".
