Blurred cleavage: Row on the BBC over a woman's body sensor

An internal line was reported to have erupted on the BBC about censorship of female bodies after the body interviewed escaped in an interview in Nairobi.

According to The Guardian, a top editor at a British broadcaster engaged in a struggle after a documentary about how people described themselves on social media was edited and the parting of the interviewee escaped.

The BBC Africa documentary features Pam Glamor – a Kenyan woman who describes herself as an interior designer, makeup artist and Kenyan social media star.

He was shown as the person interviewed in a fake BBC news documentary named Fake Me: Living for Likes.

The Guardian said a staff member at the BBC said the decision to obscure Pam's split arrived by a senior editor after efforts to enlarge to avoid exposing her cleavage proved futile especially with wide shots.

Pam discussed in the interview her attitude towards social media explaining that for the best Instagram photos, one must look "elegant and sophisticated".

Following this line, The Guardian quoted a BBC spokesman as saying "part of it is broadcast through a number of BBC partner stations in Africa that are subject to watershed regulations similar to the UK. Because the majority of our partner stations show pre-watershed programs, we ensure films this is suitable for broadcast on the market. "

Besides Pam, the documentary also features other Kenyan female fashion fans who are only identified as Jowie.
