Broadcasting Authority warns TVR1 over stunt gone wrong live

The National Broadcasting Authority (CNA) warned the public television channel on Tuesday over a stunt gone wrong in the show “Danutz SRL” live on Sunday evening. During a martial arts demonstration with swords in the show, Holograf band guitarist Romeo Dediu suffered a head injury. The show Danutz SRL is run by Dediu’s Holograf colleague, leading man Dan Bittman.

“CNA gave a public warning to the Romanian television for the fact it broadcast a show that contained a certain degree of violence at an hour when children have unrestrained TV access. This circus act, with swords and knives, ended badly, with a negative impact on the public and especially on children,” CNA head Rasvan Popescu said.

He said that beyond the warning handed out to TVR1, the Broadcasting Authority will try to warn TV channels about the possibility of such incidents emerging during live shows.

Another Holograf band member, Iulian Vrabete, meanwhile said that the incident was not serious and Dediu suffered only a light injury. TVR MondoFilm also said in a press release that it took full responsibility over what happened in the show. The release also underlined that Dediu volunteered to take part in the martial arts demonstration.
