CASE NO: 21/2014 – COETZER AND PETERSEN VS SABC2 – CHILDREN

Complaints were received in regard to a programme, which forms part of a series, that the televisionintroductory recap of the previous episode was from a sexual point of view too explicit.  The Tribunal held that although the soapie itself did not warrant an age restriction or a classification, the recap of rather intimate kissing, implied sex and fondling in the previous episode was of such a nature that it should have been broadcast later, or carried an advisory that the said material was about to be shown.

The complaint was upheld and a fine of R10 000 was imposed.
