People who live in Harpurhey in Manchester protested outside the BBC in Salford this morning, angry at the way a programme has portrayed their community.
'People like us' is a reality TV show about the city district which campaigners say it is offensive and laden with stereotypes.
A BBC spokesman said: “We are listening to the range of feedback from the local area and contributors, many of whom have been positive.
"People Like Us" takes a warm and at times unflinching look at the reality of life for young people in Harpurhey and follows a range of contributors as they tell their own stories in their own words through both good times and bad.
"The series does not focus on negative stereotypes, indeed many of those featured are resilient, resourceful and ambitious young people with positive stories to tell – from running their own businesses to planning their future careers – and they do so with captivating wit and enthusiasm."
