Amongst some of the more dubious choices is Seven’s airing of Jeepers Creepers 2. The film is directed by Victor Salva who was convicted of pedophilia during an earlier film he made, “Clownhouse” in 1989. Salva pleaded guilty and served 15 months for charges relating to acts involving a child under the age of 14. He later made films for Disney which unsurprisingly led to a considerable public outcry. It will screen at 12:40am Sunday morning, but should Seven really be screening this? And if so, where would that leave films by Roman Polanski? A difficult decision, but one I’m guessing the Programming Department probably hasn’t considered.
Less controversial viewing this weekend includes a repeat of Eurovision, the introduction of Doctor Who’s new sidekick played by Freema Agyeman, the late night return of Living with Fran and a repeat of John Safran‘s exorcism episode.
