ITV admission over ‘faked’ death


Forget the competitions, the latest TV blunder is literally a matter of life and death.

An ITV documentary initially claimed that it ended by showing the death of an Alzheimer sufferer, who in fact, went on to die three days later.

The programmes creator, Paul Watson told BBC News: “My crime is that I did not compile that press statement and that I did not read it sufficiently clearly, if indeed I did see it properly and I’m sure I didn’t”.

The footage actually showed Mr Pointon slipping into unconsciousness rather than ‘passing away’ as claimed initially by ITV.
