Our latest research

Today we have released our latest research on the acceptability of words in broadcasting. This research was last carried out in 2009.

The latest report, What Not to Swear: The Acceptability of Words in Broadcasting 2013, shows that there has been little change to what people find unacceptable on air though there has been a slight softening in attitudes to the eight most unacceptable words if shown in a TV movie after 8.30pm.
