Read this: Normalising our loudness

Summary: All you need is LUFS. The current broadcast standards for loudness are based around the ITU-1770 measurement recommendation, and the EBU R-128 recommendation which specifies a target integrated loudness of -23LUFS. This value works really well in the home and is the standard for our HD television transmission, but when a programme recorded to an integrated loudness value of -23 LUFS is played in a noisy environment on portable equipment with its legal volume limits, it can sound very quiet compared to commercial music, and at worst it can become inaudible against the background conditions. If we were just processing speech, we might go for a greater reduction in the loudness range, just pop music, we might look for higher integrated loudness values. - link

I have been having problems with sound on t.v. Programs for years now.
Sound engineers don't seem to know how to operate compressors/ limiters
,as the vast volume difference's from mumbled dialogue then extremely loud, orchestral stabs of music that could wake the whole street is just another example of how nobody does their job right.
Utter, anger inducing annoyance of the Highest order.
