A documentary called Babies told the story of a 47-year-old woman having her fifth child who had had her first child at the age of 18 and had given it up for adoption at birth. The documentary showed the adopted child as a young woman and gave her first name, even though consent had not been given to broadcast this material. The daughter complained that this breached her privacy. The broadcaster upheld the complaint, and the material objected to was edited out in case the item was rebroadcast. The board found the action taken insufficient and ordered $500 compensation to be paid to the complainant.
