Are childrens programmes too safe
I recently read an article that was questioning whether regulations about children's programmes are too strict nowadays. Many shows end up getting lots of scenes cut or censored because the broadcasters think they are 'too dangerous' for children.
Lauren Child, author of Lola and Charlie
talked about the issues she had. In her books, Lola eats biscuits and crisps, but that is not allowed in the cartoon; an episode proposal in which Lola gets head lice was rejected, and a scene from a book, where Lola did a forward roll was only allowed to be shown on TV if she had a mattress to do it on.
Gone are the days, where you can have cat and mice hitting each other over the head with a frying pan. Do you think children's TV is too safe?
