Default Original Sound track censored

Hi,

On MNET Action (channel 106) the sound track of the movie 'Edison' is censored. The Language menu shows only "English - Original" so it really shouldn't be censored at all. This movie is particularly impossible to follow because critical evidence in a court case hearing is simply censored out.

The movie started at 22:45 on 15 November. Decoder is a PVR-1. I also have a recorded version of the movie (recorded a few days earlier) and it has the same problem.

Please, please fix this. It is not the only program suffering from this affliction.

Good Day

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. You are correct - the same audio was played out on both soundtracks. There was a problem with the audio on the mixing desk.

Measures have been put in place to prevent this from happening again.

We do apologize for the inconvenience caused. The incident referred to is only. related to Action X. There are instances where there is only one audio soundtrack available which will be played out on family and original.

Kind Regards

Shantal

It seems that whatever measures were put in place did not work. I eagerly awaited the rebroadcast of "Edison" on MNET Action, but allas, the entire movie is still censored.

"Edison" - MNET Action, 00:01, on 3 Dec.

Please look into it again, maybe escalate to somebody higher?
