Pol clean up TV to safeguard kids

World Brief

MADRID — Spain’s ruling PSOE socialist party has passed new regulations safeguarding child TV auds.

The regs ban 18-plus programming from airing between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., and 13-plus shows from 8-9 a.m. and 5-8 p.m., and 9-12 a.m. at weekends and on national holidays.

The agreement follows a crusade by the government to purge trash TV from Spanish airwaves. Fearing a weightier crackdown on violence, sex and scandalmongering, pubcaster RTVE, commercial nets Antena 3 and Telecinco, and pay TV operator Sogecable have buckled under.

The nets and the government have established a joint watchdog, along with reps of parents, children’s and consumer bodies, to oversee compliance with the new regs.
