Tribunal explaining that it has no authority to take episode off air or ordering broadcaster to do so.  Episode was broadcast at a time when children are at school and it was broadcast with the necessary warnings.  The episode is considered to be a bona fide drama and it is therefore exempt from the limitations contained in clauses 3 and 4 of the Code.  No contravention of the Code found and complaint not upheld.
