Did anyone see tonights episode? At the begining and end it showed "Stitch" snorting a form of drug. In my eyes - this is unacceptable viewing - who/how can I complain against this?

You learn all about drugs at 11 anyway, We got given leaflets on whats the best drug to take.............I mean whats the worst. :giggle:

If you feel that strongly and want to complain (Even if the fake blood and wounds aren't enough!) there is a complaints section on the BBC site.

Oh becks, I forgot the linky (Although Admin did link to Ofcom which would be better although firing off a complaint to both is likely to get seen more.)

I don't watch the show, but I did find this on the BBC website : BBC Editorial Guildlines

Alcohol, smoking, solvent & drug abuse & illegal drugs

We must balance the need to reflect the range of public attitudes and behaviour realistically, with the danger of encouraging potentially damaging or illegal behaviour, particularly amongst children.

The use of illegal drugs, the abuse of drugs, smoking, solvent abuse and the misuse of alcohol should not be featured in programmes made primarily for children unless there is a clear editorial justification.

Unless editorially justified we should not encourage, glamorise or condone the use of illegal drugs, the abuse of drugs, smoking, solvent abuse and the misuse of alcohol:

* in pre-Watershed programmes or in post-Watershed programmes likely to be widely seen by under eighteens.
* on radio when children are particularly likely to be listening or when programmes are likely to be widely heard by under eighteens.
* in online content likely to appeal to a high proportion of children.



if it helps :)

I know it's a Misc forum but can people please try to at least answer the OP's questions and not take the thread off on tangents particularly when they become personal.

If you would like to discuss whether sensitive material is acceptable pre-watershed we've moved the comments here:
