The bullying began the moment 14-year-old Kelsey arrived at school.
“F***ing p***ter. Shemale. I wanna smash the mop head. F*** yourself,” disguised voices shouted, in vision where identities are blurred.
And how was that footage captured? By a hidden camera, given to a child who was being bullied at school, by a TV production company.
The footage was the linchpin of a documentary, Bullied, which screened on Tuesday night on the ABC.
It’s a controversial concept because neither the school nor the parents of its pupils had given their permission for the filming to take place.
