Swedish news channel SVT is facing major embarrassment and ridicule after accidentally showing a Czech porn movie in the background of a news broadcast over the weekend.

Viewers of a five-minute news update just after midnight could see explicit scenes from the movie on a TV screen behind newsreader Peter Dahlgren.

Apparently some staffers had been watching the Canal Plus channel earlier in the evening and had forgot to change the station.

"This is highly embarrassing and unfortunate. It must not happen again." The Daily Mail quoted news director Per Yng as saying.

A producer quickly spotted the sex scenes and ran into the control room and turned off the monitor, Yng said. He said there had been no complaints from viewers about the mishap, but “enormous interest from the media”.

The show, called Rapport, has been renamed "Rapporn" by Swedish tabloids.

Magnus Akerlund, who oversees the hourly news updates, told tabloid Expressen he was "shocked and dismayed" at the mistake.

"It's a huge blunder by us," he said.
