The report says the Canadian radio stations listen to comments and reactions from their audience and reacted accordingly.

Radio stations in Australia, Canada and New Zealand have become the latest to ban Michael Jackson from the air after horrific abuse claims.

"The decisions we make about the music we play on any of our stations are dependent on the relevance to the audience and the current context", said Paul Jackson, NOVA Entertainment's group programme director.

Peter Andre has argued that Michael Jackson's music shouldn't be banned.

Meantime three major Montreal radio stations are taking a stand as a result of the child molestation allegations made against the singer.

A spokesman for Radio NZ, a publicly-funded broadcaster, said it would only play Jackson if it was "part of a news story or to provide color around a commentary piece". "However, these remain allegations and therefore we now intend to continue to play his music on occasion".

Some radio stations in Quebec have taken a stand, saying that Jackson is no longer welcome on any playlists.

"Generally our policy is to judge the song not the artist, but we do react to listener complaints", station chief executive Bevan Jones said. The documentary is named after Jackson's California residence.

The two part film - which airs on Channel 4 tonight and tomorrow - explicitly details alleged child sexual abuse carried out by Michael Jackson.

Jackson, of course, is one of the most successful entertainers of all time: He is known as the "King Of Pop", he has sold over 350 million albums, and his 1987 album Bad produced five consecutive No. 1 singles, including "Man In The Mirror" and the album's title track.

Peter Andre has defended the late singer amid the sex abuse allegations in Leaving Neverland. He died in 2009.
