Oz B’cast Board Gets Complaints

A group of Aussies last year wanted to drape the classic form of Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of the naked David when it appeared in an “everything’s off” blurb for underwear.

The 35 complaints represented a handful of the nearly 2,000 that were handled by the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal in the 1989-90 financial year, according to a report just released. In the David case, the ABT refused to uphold the objections.

Sex, nudity, violence and bad language were main complaints.

The ABT only upheld four complaints, including one for a promo of “Nightmare On Elm Street” run during a.m. cartoons.
