TV apology over Bush 'severed head'14/06/2012 - 20:18:25
US broadcaster HBO and the producers of the drama series Game of Thrones have apologised for a scene that appeared to depict former American president George W Bush’s severed head on a spike.
Producers Dan Weiss and David Benioff say they did not intentionally use the prosthetic head because it looked like Mr Bush, and added they meant no disrespect to him.
The scene was shown last year and included again in a DVD release this March, with little public notice.
However, a story about the image began circulating online this week – as HBO prepares to premiere a documentary on Mr Bush’s father, fellow former president George HW Bush.
