TV Station Under Fire For Controversial Documentary

Britain’s Channel 4 is being criticized for its plans to air a controversial documentary on Chinese performance artists. Among the controversial scenes are one “showing a performance artist eating the flesh of a dead baby” and “a man drinking wine that has had an amputated penis marinaded in it.” The station defends its plans: “The programme will be controversial and will shock some viewers but a warning will be given before it goes out on air.”
