An Auckland production company is calling on Google and YouTube to change their ad policies after adverts for documentaries about medical conditions and people with disabilities were blocked for breaching rules around ‘shocking content’.

Ads initially blocked by Google’s systems from appearing on YouTube included one for a documentary about the lives of little people, another profiling a 4-year-old with a life-threatening medical condition, and a third involving a doctor helping farmers with mental health issues.

The documentaries were made by Attitude Pictures, which aims to remove stigma from people who are different or live with a disability, and show how they can live like anyone else.
