Someone on YouTube, as well as elsewhere, is stating the plane crash episodes from 1993 were not shown in Scotland. Of course, I know this is utter bunkum, but he also mentions a campaign by Garry Bushell to have the episodes pulled before transmission. Is there any truth in this? I know it was controversial (the timing of the broadcast shortly after the 5th Anniversary of the Lockerbie air disaster) and Eamonn Holmes was one of the people who criticised the storyline on GMTV - but was there ever any serious attempt to have the episodes pulled, in Scotland or network-wide?
I’m also curious as to whether any ITV region (such as Border) aired a warning before the episode that it contained scenes viewers may find distressing, or similar?
