Our presenters or guests were not offensive in anyway and the music videos we showed were not offensive however the ‘zombie nation-mind of many’ music video may be offensive as lots of people these days take drugs and that particular music video is taking the micky out of people who actually take drugs.

We had a different place for the presenters to get changed for their privacy also with our guests we also had a separate room for them if they wanted to leave and sit somewhere else we would have to respect that unless they are on for an interview etc... also in the music videos we had to ask everyone for permission like a professional person, if they could be in our music videos if not you have to respect their privacy.
