Generation Porn , a landmark Channel 4 documentary trilogy from the award-winning producers at Story Films, will explore the influence of the modern internet porn epidemic through the people who watch it, star in it and control it. The cyber porn industry has exploded. Online giant Porn Hub reported that in 2017 it catered to 28. 5 billion visitors – or 800 searches per second.

We have received complaints from some viewers who were unhappy with scenes of violence in the Mick Carter prison storyline. We’re aware that any scenes of violence and unpleasantness can sometimes be upsetting for some of our audience but occasionally it’s necessary to the narrative. We are always extremely mindful of the content within an episode and the time slot in which it is shown.
All of our content, including language must be editorially justified and we’re always careful to film and edit scenes in such a way that they do not exceed reasonable expectations for the programme — with much of the violence being implied rather than explicit. We feel the scenes in question are crucial aspects of the overall storyline of Mick’s time in prison, and that they were not included gratuitously.

Robinson’s comments were about whether the video incited fear of Mulsims, and was not about Robinson’s actions inciting fear.
