Channel 4 finds itself in sex-porn-cosmetics quandary

INTERESTING PROGRAMME on Channel Four tonight – contrasting the difference between sex education and pornography.

The lass presenting the prog made the valid  point that all women are different and that breasts are there to provide milk for babies. Her case was somewhat undermined by the adverts that interrupted the dialogues. For example, in the second break, there was an advert for Five Star Legs for Women that gets virtually every hair, to the tune of “I am your Venus”.

The first ad break talked of “satin like skin”. And then we had the Lindt Gold Bunny.  There was talk a while back of Channel 4 being absorbed by the BBC so it could become a public service broadcasting channel. This programme demonstrated the wisdom of such a move. Advertising always subverts journalism. Δ
