5.2.1 – The BBC must apply generally accepted standards so as to provide adequate protection for members of the public from the inclusion of offensive and harmful material.
I will be putting in disclaimers throughout the documentary to warn listeners of harmful material.
5.2.2 – We must not broadcast material that might seriously impair the physical, mental or moral development of children and young people.
The topic of the death penalty will not contain any material that will seriously impair – physically, mentally or the development of children and young people. Similar documentaries have been made by the BBC for a similar production program.
5.2.4 – We must balance our responsibility to protect children and young people from unsuitable content with their rights to freedom of expression and freedom to receive information.
Some of the information that will be told in the documentary won’t be particularly suitable for under 14’s.
5.2.5 – We must ensure our audiences have clear information on which to judge whether content is suitable for themselves or their children.
5.2.6 – The use of strong language must be editorially justified and appropriately signposted to ensure it meets audience expectations, wherever it appears.
Language such as swearing will not be used within the documneatyr, however there will be the use of some very description words.
