HOTLINE: Five series sparks complaints to the ITC

A five series called Camera, Lights, Accident featuring strange events and mishaps sparked 37 complaints to the Independent Television Commission regarding taste and decency. One item, which showed a child being swung round from its arms and legs by an adult, was seen as inappropriate and a form of abuse. Five defended the show but agreed not to show the item again. However, the ITC found it in breach of the Programme Code that deals with the offence of audiences.
