OFCOM & THE HIDDEN TRUTH

What if the truth is being kept from you & the reality is that everyone has the sixth sense, intuition, psychic powers etc & there is nothing ‘entertainment’ about it. OFCOM clearly have been ill advised & lack any sort of understanding on this matter. The real facts are any investigative work into the subject will reveal that what you are being told is far from the truth. Why won’t Richard Wiseman, James Randi, Chris French, Derren Brown, Richard Dawkins or any of the others who think they have an idea about the subject investigate me or come on radio, even television to prove it fake? The answer is simple, they can’t & they won’t. (I would be perfectly happy to go head to head on TV or Radio with all five at the same time if they wish). They don’t want everyone else knowing what is obvious, so obvious in fact anyone with the IQ of a bacon sandwich would be able to grasp enough understanding to verify its existence. Anyone who seriously believes they have investigated the subject scientifically or otherwise for many years & found nothing is deluding themselves. Moral of this story is ‘Don’t look for truth & you won’t find it’. It truly is a massive con & one in which OFCOM are playing a huge part.  Included below are some OFCOM guidelines for Radio & TV.

UK – Broadcasting Standards Commission Code on Standards

Occult and Psychic Practices 46. Many people are concerned about the inclusion of material relating to psychic practices, especially pre-Watershed and on open access channels. Content relating to the occult gives rise to even greater levels of disquiet. The ITC received over 200 responses from licensees, organisations and individuals. After consideration of these responses, including the need to limit child viewing of psychic practices, the Code wording has been revised as follows: 1.10 The Occult and ‘Psychic’ Practices 1.10(i) Exorcisms and the Occult Actual demonstrations of exorcisms and occult practices, such as those involving the purported invocation of unknown spirits of the dead or negative forces, are not acceptable in non-fictional programming except in the context of a legitimate investigation. They should not, in any case, be shown before the watershed.

1.10(ii) Other Paranormal and related Issues NB These paragraphs refer only to issues dealt with outside a religious or doctrinal context. Section 7 deals with religious programming and issues. Demonstrations of clairvoyance, clairaudience, and similar practices are acceptable only when they are clearly and explicitly presented as entertainment, or when they are the subject of legitimate investigation. Programmes should not be included at times when significant numbers of children are expected to be watching: for example, before the watershed on public service channels. When presented for entertainment purposes, measures should include announcements before and at the end of programmes to indicate their nature as entertainment, and appropriate acknowledgement of the existence of differing opinions as to the true nature of clairaudience and clairvoyance. Programmes should not include specific advice to particular contributors or viewers about health or medical matters, the law or personal finance or include specific advice which might significantly influence behaviour in relation to personal relationships. They should not include advice which might be damaging or unduly distressing to those concerned or which might unduly disconcert the likely audience. Demonstrations of predictive practices, whether ‘psychic’ or otherwise (eg horoscopes, palmistry), are acceptable only when they are presented as entertainment or are the subject of legitimate investigation. They should not include specific advice to particular contributors or viewers about health or medical matters or about personal finance. They should not be included at times when large numbers of children are expected to be watching. Fiction programmes containing ‘psychic’ or occult phenomena should not normally be scheduled before the watershed, although a fantasy context, for example, may justify such a scheduling. This amended wording comes into force from 8 December 2003.

1.19 Demonstrations of exorcisms, occult practices and the paranormal (which purport to be real), must not be shown before the watershed or when children are particularly likely to be listening. Paranormal practices which are for entertainment purposes must not be broadcast when significant numbers of children may be expected to be watching, or are particularly likely to be listening. (This rule does not apply to drama, film or comedy).

2.6 Demonstrations of exorcism, the occult, the paranormal, divination, or practices related to any of these that purport to be real (as opposed to entertainment) must be treated with due objectivity. (See Rule 1.19 in Section One: Protecting the Under-Eighteens, concerning scheduling restrictions.)

2.7 If a demonstration of exorcism, the occult, the paranormal, divination, or practices related to any of these is for entertainment purposes, this must be made clear to viewers and listeners.

2.8 Demonstrations of exorcism, the occult, the paranormal, divination, or practices related to any of these (whether such demonstrations purport to be real or are for entertainment purposes) must not contain life-changing advice directed at individuals.(Religious programmes are exempt from this rule but must, in any event, comply with the provisions in Section Four Religion. Films, dramas and fiction generally are not bound by this rule. Life-changing advice includes direct advice for individuals upon which they could reasonably act or rely about health, finance, employment or relationships
