Rogue Military TV Penis Causes Controversy

UK's Channel 5 documentary "Royal Marines: Mission Afghanistan"

In the first episode, the soldiers are shown washing up nude, bathing their bare bodies in a river.

In advertising for the show, The Radio Times recently apologised for using a Royal Marines naked penis to advertise the Channel 5 documentary Royal Marines: Mission Afghanistan in a still photo.

An earlier statement on the Radio Times website read: "The unnamed marine is, like the rest of his unit, posing for the photograph dressed only in shorts. What we took to be the marine's finger proved, on closer inspection, to be another part of his anatomy."

However, when the first episode aired, it can be seen that it was simply honest advertising.

A viewer commented: "I know that British soldiers serving in Afghanistan are well equipped, but seeing the roll call of Royal Marines gives the expression a whole new meaning."

Editor Ben Preston added: "We apologise for any upset caused to readers by the rogue member of 42 Commando."
