Re: The Bridge documentary is an awesome piece of film

katrinab,

Yup. Ofcom have taken over all regulation from ATVOD now, which I hadn't realised. However they don't regulate them in the same way as terrestrial telly. They don't have any power over editorial content, such as TV news having to be impartial and content of other programs.

Except to think of the children, so age verification of 18 rated films, and some control of content that might harm young people (which suicide-related materials could be counted under). Other than that they regulate advertising and material "likely to promote hate".
