No TV telecast of award functions with adult content before 11 pm: BCCC

24 July 2012

The Broadcast Content Complaints Council, a self-regulatory body of non-news television channels, has advised TV channels to air after 11 pm award shows which have any adult content in them including vulgar dialogues, double-entendres and smutty puns from the anchors.

After its meeting, the BCCC headed by Justice A P Shah in its advisory noted that "sometimes, the content of the so-called jokes is demeaning to women and other communities."

It noted that it had received several complaints relating to the telecast of film award functions and shows.

It said: ‘It is not the BCCC’s intention to censor these shows, which are, after all, live events. But we believe that if the content is to include adult humour, then the telecast of these shows should only begin after 11 pm. Nor should any repeats be broadcast before 11 pm.

The BCCC noted that in many cases, the shows were not telecast live but aired at a later date. It, therefore, wondered why the channels were not able to remove inappropriate content from telecast during prime time.

The BCCC advised all channels to exercise discretion while telecasting award functions, to guard against the inclusion of adult content during prime time and to refrain from airing any content that is demeaning to women and other communities.
