Broadcaster embarrassed by porn

Cat watching television!Imagine a news broadcast with porn being shown in the background. The eyes must have popped out of the sockets of the scores of adults watching the news at that time. This must be an embarrassment to many parents too. The accidental mishap actually took place at Sweden's state broadcaster SVT. The details as extracted from Northwest Florida Daily News (AP) are as follows.

Viewers of a 5-minute news update at midnight Saturday could see explicit scenes from a Czech porn movie on a TV screen behind news anchor Peter Dahlgren.

The monitor, one of many on the wall of a control room visible behind the studio, normally shows other news channels during broadcasts. But staffers who earlier in the evening had watched a sports event on cable channel Canal Plus, which often shows X-rated films after midnight and had forgotten to switch it back, said news director Per Yng.

A producer quickly spotted the sex scenes and ran into the control room and turned off the monitor, Yng said.
