NHK International Broadcast Program BPO deliberation September 13th 23:47
In a NHK international broadcast documentary program broadcasted last November, when a company that provides rental services for family and friends was taken up, the three men and women introduced as users were actually staff of the company. The Broadcast Ethics and Program Improvement Organization has decided to deliberate whether there were any problems with broadcast ethics.
This program is NHK International Broadcast's documentary program, “Inside Lens”, which NHK affiliates have adopted and broadcast from plans proposed by external documentary directors and directors.
This time, outside directors and people in charge of affiliated companies were unaware that there was a problem with the contents of the program, and NHK apologized in May for telling them that the contents were different from the facts, and then announced measures to prevent recurrence. It is.
Regarding the decision of the BPO to deliberate, NHK says, "We will cooperate with future deliberation and thoroughly prevent recurrence."
