ITC COMMENT ON BRASS EYE

THE ITC Chairman Sir Robin Biggam has spoken to Tessa Jowell, the Secretary of State, and reassured her that the ITC is, and will be, fulfilling all of its obligations in relation to the complaints about Channel 4's Brass Eye programme.
The ITC has a statutory obligation under the Broadcasting Act 1990 to draw up a Programme Code giving guidance to broadcasters on the appropriate standards they must observe. Up to the point of transmission it is the responsibility of the broadcaster to ensure they meet these requirements.
Following the broadcast of Brass Eye on Thursday at 10.35pm (repeated on Friday night at 12.10am) the ITC has received a large number of complaints (approximately 700 processed to date) in relation to taste, decency and offence and the use of children in the programme.
The ITC will assess the complaints in the light of the Programme Code as quickly as possible bearing in mind due process and the need to allow Channel 4 to put its case.
