Dear Miss Jones,

Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to express how sorry we are at your distress over this programme, although we knew the programme would cause controversy we hoped that the veiwers would understand the reasons behind 'Brass eye' being to expose how the media blow things out of proportion. Brass eye uses many serious issues such as animal cruelty to expose these issues and feelings.

The documentary did not break any programme codes as it was shown at 10pm, so the programme has suitable language and content for that time. In regards of the celebrities and child with enhanced breasts this also abides by the codes as the privacy was protected. It also never actually glorified paedophilia, but presented it in such a way the media could present the issue.

once again we would like to apologise about the upset caused to you or any other veiwers.

yours sincerely,



Dear Sir/Madam,
I am writing to inform you of my disgust at the recent 'Brass Eye' programme entitled 'Peadogeddon'. I was extremely distressed that the programme would use a issue so awful as paedophilia and presenting it as something funny and acceptable.

I was particularly uncomfortable when they showed a young child's supposedly enhanced breasts, and made it although children who are in beauty pageants are easy targets for paedophiles and its therefor acceptable to poke fun at this.

Although i understand that this programme was supposed to be humorous, i do believe that the joke went far to far, which i believe many viewers would agree made them angry and uncomfortable by this.

Also, the exploitation of celebrities could have a negative effect on their reputation and how the general public sees them.

Finally i would like to point out that this is a traumatic experience many people have gone through and are experiencing to this day. It is hard enough for these victims to open up about what they are going through without programmes like this poking fun at it making them feel inadequate.

I would like you to reconsider showing programmes like this in future, I'm sure many viewers who previously enjoy channel 4 programming feel the same. I also think you should reconsider airing this programme again, to stop any more offence or hurt to your viewers.

yours sincerely Dannii Jones
