Complain about a BBC TV channel, radio station or BBC iPlayer


For complaints about BBC TV or radio programmes or programmes watched on BBC iPlayer, you should complain to the BBC first.

Other than in exceptional circumstances, Ofcom only considers complaints about BBC programmes where the complainant has already complained to the BBC and completed the BBC’s complaints process, having escalated the complaint to the BBC’s Executive Complaints Unit and received a final response from them. When you reach our complaint form you will be asked for details of the BBC’s investigation and a BBC reference number.

If you wish to complain about a programme which has not yet been broadcast, please contact the BBC in the first instance.
