TIME: 25

The ITC, the Independent Television Commission, regulates commercial television in the UK.
They make rules for everything: the content of programmes and advertising, the appropriate
time to transmit certain materials, the technical quality of transmissions, etc. If broadcasters
dont follow ITC rules, they are penalised. The Independent Television Commission also
investigates complaints from the audience and publishes the results regularly. Here are some
Three viewers complained about an advertisement for a famous fried chicken restaurant. They
said it gave the impression that you received more than three pieces of chicken when you
ordered chicken strips and that the container with sauce in the advert was larger than the one
they sold in the restaurant.
The ITC decided that the visual content of the advert clearly gave the wrong impression. As a
result, the advertiser had to change the image of the sauce container and add a title saying 3
for 2.15 pounds.
Another programme showed people taking extraordinary risks. Once one of them ate six
glasses in front of the camera. Six TV viewers complained that children at home might do the
same thing.
The ITC considered that the act was clearly presented as something very dangerous and not as
something that children should do themselves. Consequently, the ITC decided that there was
nothing illegal about the programme.
