Perfect teeth, yellow cabs, and take-outs


David Davis

Have these people realised that these shows may be on, because it’s what British children want to watch?

The MSM providers are not a perfect undistorted market: far from it. But they perhaps more nearly reflect what our youth wants in their programming than does, say, the BBC for what (it thinks) adults want.

Personally, I’d rather there were many more factual science, history and engineering programmes. That’ll also do more to “empower the women of tomorrow’s Young Country” than any amount of Disney child-hotel-soaps, or multiculti-Noddy.

  2. Then in 2007 they were told they could no longer run advertisements for foods that were high in sugar, salt and fat during children’s broadcasting.

    ITV promptly stopped commissioning children’s programmes.

    Hmmm…
