Audience complaints

12 Mai 2021

Complaints assessed under the Broadcasting Code.

Viewers and listeners in the UK have long enjoyed a rich heritage of broadcasting and quality programming. But sometimes you may see something on TV – or hear a programme on radio – which you find offensive or think is harmful.

Every time Ofcom receives a complaint from a viewer or listener, we assess it under the Broadcasting Code to see if it needs further investigation. The Code sets standards for television and radio shows and broadcasters have to follow these rules.

It is not possible for us to list every complaint we have received – but here is a list in chronological order of those programmes that received more than 50 standards complaints last week (we do not include fairness and privacy complaints in this list)*.

Report covers complaints received between: Tuesday 4 May and Monday 10 May 2021
