Ofcom - no swearing, please Auntie...

Ofcom censures BBC one and UKTV Gold for daytime swearing

Ofcom censures BBC one and UKTV Gold for daytime swearing
published on UK Free TV

Ofcom says BBC One broke rule 1.14 "the most offensive language must not be broadcast before the watershed" when the words Oi you fat c*nt were broadcast at 7:30pm on 28th January 2008 during "Blackpool Medics ".

The American President on UKTV Gold, 13 January 2008,14:55, managed to break the same rule, but this time with the f-word.

And the "Tease Me" channel (then Turn On TV) broke the rules because "at the time of broadcast the programme director noticed the presenter absent mindedly scratching herself on a couple of occasions. " - 1.3 "children must be protected by appropriate scheduling", 1.17 "portrayal of sexual behaviour before the watershed" and 2.1 "generally accepted standards".
