Viewers of The Estate We’re In, a BBC program focusing on a Bristol housing estate from UK prodco Twofour Productions, have issued complaints about the veracity of certain scenes in the show. The police chief of Lawrence Weston, the area being documented in the program, says scenes featuring youths in hoodies taunting police officers were not filmed in his area. The BBC says it’s looking into the matter, while a Twofour producer says, ‘There was no attempt to mislead viewers.’
