In two separate incidents, too much human flesh was inadvertently broadcast over St. Paul, Minn.'s, cable TV system: once in the form of three teen-agers flashing a public access cable show, the other a wrong switch allowing hard-core pornography to be beamed over the religious public access channel. Continental Cable Co. officials said Thursday the teen-agers gained entry to the studios of Public Access St. Paul, activated the system's general public access channel and exposed themselves to the camera. And in the case of the porno snafu, Continental General Manager Randall Coleman said the explicit material was aired on Continental's Multi-Faith Channel for five to 10 minutes Tuesday night before the mistake was discovered.
