SABC To Add 'Viewer Discretion Warning' To Shows With 'Suggestive Sex' Content
This instruction has been issued following an avalanche of complaints by members of the viewing public over what was deemed overtly and inappropriate sex scenes during the SABC1 soap opera - Generations. SABC broadcast Generations weekdays at 8.00pm on SABC1 with an omnibus on Sunday at 9.00am.
While the BCCSA agreed that the show had pushed the boundary, it did not, however, breach any provisions of the Code of Conduct. It does, however, need to carry a warning on the content it broadcasts if they contain inappropriate sexual-related material before the 9.00pm watershed period.
