child dignity in the digital world logo A conference took place in October 2017 in the Vatican in Rome called Child Dignity in the Digital World. The vent describes itself on its website:

This pioneering congress hosted by the Centre for Child Protection at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome sets a milestone in the international fight against digital sexual child abuse.

The invitation-only congress brings together distinguished academic experts, business leaders, leaders of civil society, high-level politicians and religious representatives from across the globe. This provides a historic opportunity to set the global agenda for the fight against online sexual child abuse and for child protection in the digital world.

The BBFC's Policy Director David Miles attended the conference and reported bacK

The agenda included presentations from some of the foremost academic researchers on the impact of pornography on children and young people. There was considerable overseas interest in Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act (DEA) and the BBFC's proposed regulatory role under it, with the DEA seen as a potential model for other countries to draw upon.

It was also noted that Miles will recommend following up with experts and country contacts once the BBFC is officially designated as the internet porn censor.

BBC logoThe BBC has conceded to Ofcom's demand that Complaints Reports should be published each fortnight.

Perhaps as an indication of bad grace, the reports are buried away in a very obscure location on the BBC's website.

Anyway the first report reveals that:

Between 30 October and 12 November2017, BBC Audience Services (Stage 1) received a total of 5,529 complaints about programmes. 8,377 complaints in total were received at Stage 1.

Stage 1 is presumably just an unfiltered list of complaints. Stage 2 seems to be when complaints are selected for BBC investigation. There are further stages when complainants are not satisfied with the BBC response and want to take it further.

The BBC the identifies programmes receiving more than 100 complaints, in this report:

  • Have I Got News For You , BBC One 03/11/2017, 234 complaints
  • Strictly Come Dancing, BBC One 04/11/2017, 206 complaints

The BBC then listed 11 Stage 2 investigations that resulted in 9 complaints that were not upheld and 2 that were partially or fully upheld:
