The UK’s Channel Four is fielding complaints just because of an instructive painting show. Oh, and I guess technically it showed a model in the nude. During lunch time hours.
The channel is showing five life drawing classes through the week as part of its education show Life Class: Today’s Nude.
Each half-hour broadcast has a different model and tutor to tell viewers about art and drawing techniques, guiding them through drawing their own picture as if they are in a real life class…
Section 1.18 of Ofcom’s Broadcasting Code says: “Nudity before the watershed must be justified by the context.”
Sweet, I love justified nudity! I’m getting pretty good at it, too. “No, your honor, I wasn’t wearing pants. But in my defense, have you SEEN the rack on the plaintiff!?!?”
I want more like this!
