Default C5 rapped over Big Brother Hazel, Daley violence

Quote:
Media regulator Ofcom has reprimanded Channel 5 over its handling of the incident between Hazel O’Sullivan and Daley Ojuederie that led to the latter’s eviction from Big Brother 2013.

During last summer’s fourteenth series of the show, the boxer was removed by producers after his illicit relationship with the glamour model came to a head in the Safe House.



After Hazel removed the duvet cover from his bed and pulled down Daley’s shorts, he reacted violently, pinning her down with both arms and clasping her neck while making various threats.

Lines uttered by the 28-year-old included: “Respect your ********** elders, before I nut you one.”

Following 165 complaints from viewers, Ofcom launched an investigation examining whether the altercation – which also attracted the attention of local police – breached a rule in its broadcasting code stating that potentially offensive material must be justified by its context.

In its defence, Channel 5 pointed out that Big Brother has been on air for over a decade, and that viewers are in no doubt that they may witness “dramatic and confrontational behaviour”.

They said that they have a responsibility to broadcast major events in the house, arguing that what happened would have been “impossible” to ignore and that doing so would have compromised Big Brother’s “editorial integrity” and “misled” the audience.

C5 explained that the episode in question broke the show’s traditional format of featuring highlights from the previous day only, as Daley’s removal was shown immediately after the incident itself, even though his exit happened the following morning.

They also noted that the warning read out before its broadcast – alluding to “scenes of a sexual nature and some scenes that some viewers may find distressing” – was more specific than the usual cautions, but claimed that there was no need to give further details.

Meanwhile, C5 insisted that Hazel had not shown any signs of distress until immediately before Big Brother broke up the situation, despite Ofcom questioning them on particular actions and lines of dialogue from her exchange with Daley.

The verdict
Ofcom accepted that Big Brother has an established reputation, but said that what Daley did was “clearly capable of causing grave offence” to viewers.

Although C5 had argued that “similar scenes appear in dramas and films without complaint”, Ofcom’s view is that there’s a “distinct difference” between dramatised violence and violence in reality TV, as viewers recognise that producers play a role in setting up the scenarios involved.

The regulator agreed that there is “some merit” to the argument that the show has a duty to provide an accurate portrayal of live in the house – so viewers can make informed voting decisions – but added that there is no “obligation” for them to air footage if it’s likely to cause offence.

Ofcom ruled that the warning before the episode wasn’t specific enough as it didn’t refer to violence, and that the advert break preceding the footage should also have featured a warning.

They dismissed C5′s opinion that Hazel hadn’t shown any distress, saying that her actions could have been interpreted differently and that Big Brother should have stepped in earlier.

They also suggested that Big Brother hadn’t sufficiently demonstrated that Daley’s behaviour was unacceptable during his visit to the Diary Room immediately after the intervention, noting that a more robust wording was used just before his exit.

As a result, Ofcom concluded that C5 had breached the broadcast code. Summing up its findings, they said: “In this difficult case, Ofcom’s view is that Channel 5 did take a number of steps to seek to contextualise the offence in this case, including compressing the incident into one broadcast so that viewers could see the outcome, and ultimately evicting Daley from the House as a result of his violent behaviour.

“However, the decision not to edit the material for the purpose of limiting offence – despite its clear potential to cause offence – coupled with the generalised nature of the pre-broadcast warning 40 minutes before the incident and the lack of clarity that Daley’s conduct was unacceptable when Big Brother first intervened led Ofcom to conclude that the offence to viewers was not justified by the context.”
This is stupid , I though Channel 5 handled it very good

what else can they do they removed him. FFS

Oh **** off, OFCOM. What a pathetic ruling, and this is only going to mean more sh*t-in-the-freezer esque cover-ups. Give yourselves a round of applause

Ofcom are moronic, well done PC Britain.

C5 handled the case the best they could.

Hopefully Channel 5 still show incidents, but they just put warnings on right before the incident. Then Ofcom or anyone else for that matter can't complain that they weren't warned.

Sounds to me like C5 want to make viewers aware of what's happening in the show at the time, so why not bring back Live Feed?

They'll show incidents, but they'll be very heavy handed in dealing with them to try and make an example

BB will be thoroughly watered down as if it wasn't enough already

So OFCOM would have preferred that C5 buried the whole thing and covered it up? I don't think that would have been fair to Hazel or Daley. They showed the whole incident unedited.

Bit on the Side should have got the rap for not clarifying Daley's actions were unacceptable, I felt the main show took everything into context. Even if they did take a lot out from what was seen on the live feed. Everything was Hazel's fault with that shower of polyester and fags on the side show.

But, even though I hated that, is it really channel 5 or Big Brother's responsibility to treat the viewers like 3 year olds and have to clarify who's right and who's wrong?

Channel 5 are completely correct in OP

I was over the moon when Daley was removed tbh - he was so ****ing boring it was cray and then it was announced on YouTube via the interview task (Gina vs Hazel) which I found hilarious

--

Unlike freezergate eh...was fine to ignore that even though it was where the majority of bad feelings between housemates came from, and ultimately what lead to a housemate walking out

I think BB handled hazel/daley well tbh. BOTS, not so much so...but everyone knows BOTS is just trash.

I think what they meant was that it would be hard to explain Daley just disappearing from the episodes forever without actually showing the footage and the removal.

Not that anyone would've noticed if he'd been ejected and we hadn't been told about it... he was boring as hell

Emma and BOTS should get a rollocking for their sympathetic apologetic simpering when he was ejected imo.
