Coronavirus: Midday movie exposes a flaw in Channel Seven’s programming

Raunchy midday movie exposes a MAJOR flaw in Channel Seven’s programming – as schools close due to the coronavirus pandemic

A major flaw in Channel Seven’s programming was exposed by the network’s afternoon movie on Tuesday.

Seven aired the 2016 film Indiscretion, which features a raunchy sex scene and is classified ‘M’ for mature audiences.

The broadcaster is allowed to air sexually suggestive content between 12pm and 3pm on weekdays because children are normally at school.

However, this is no longer the case for the thousands of Australian children who are staying at home due to school closures.

All schools in Victoria were closed on Tuesday to stop the spread of coronavirus – which means children may have been exposed to the film’s adult content. 

Many parents in other states across the country have opted to keep their kids at home by choice despite schools remaining open.

In the straight-to-TV movie, Veronica Simon (Mira Sorvino) has an affair with young sculptor Victor Bernard (Christopher Backus) while her husband is away. 

Just 15 minutes into the film, Veronica grinds on Victor at a club before the pair go back to his place to have sex. 

While this may seem rather risqué for a midday movie, it is perfectly legal under the 2010 Commercial Television Industry Code of Practice. 

Violent: In addition to themes of sex and affairs, the movie is also a violent psychological thriller, which could scare younger audiences

Under the guidelines, mature-rated content can be legally broadcast between the hours of 12pm and 3pm on a weekday because children are normally at school. 

In addition to themes of sex and affairs, Indiscretion is also a violent psychological thriller that could scare younger audiences. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
