mature content Interrupts Documentary



Viewers watching a television documentary on a cable channel in Germany saw more than they expected when the programme was interrupted by scenes of hardcore s_x.

Dozens of viewers called XXP TV to complain after scenes from the BBC's Superhuman series were replaced with images of group s_x from the Spice Platinum channel.

Monika Weitkamp of the Berlin-based documentary channel said the cable carriers had mixed up the feeds. The voiceover for the documentary, dubbed into German, continued during the pornographic interlude.

"A lot of people watching it with their kids called up in a rage to complain. They'd probably never seen anything like it in their lives," she said.
