The Authority today released decisions on four complaints, one of which was upheld.
The upheld complaint related to a radio item, covering the ‘Dome Valley’ kidnapping case, that contained descriptions of graphic violence. The Authority supported the broadcast of the item, which was in the public interest and had high value by giving a voice to the victim. However, it considered the item required an audience advisory (warning) for violent content, as the detailed description of the violence may have been distressing for some people, particularly children or victims of violence.
