Jackson show u-turn

A television network has cancelled plans to air a re-enactment of Michael Jackson's autopsy.

The Discovery television network says it didn't want to interfere with an upcoming court hearing.

John Branca and John McClain, officials from the late pop star's estate, had described the programme as"insensitive" and "in shockingly bad taste."

"Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson's estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson's official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely," Discovery Networks International said in a statement.

Mr Branca and Mr McClain said they were pleased with the network's decision.

"Your decision to even schedule this programme is in shockingly bad taste and insensitive to Michael's family," the co-executors wrote.

The programme was scheduled to be aired in Europe on 13 January.

The singer died suddenly in June of 2009.
