This special was a parody of the hysteria over paedophilia stoked by the British news media in 2000. Channel 4 received over 3,000 complaints and the network issued a public apology. Politicians also condemned the programme but many of them admitted that they had not actually seen it. Christopher Morris
never publicly addressed the controversy. See more
