Family First Comment: Now before the BSA for their consideration. But don’t hold your breath….!! 

More than 500 formal complaints have been made about a new show being aired on TVNZ 2 which is “saturated” with full frontal nudity and discussions about sex.

Figures on the number of complaints made about the show, Naked Attraction, were released to Family First under the Official Information Act after the organisation was “swamped” with complaints.

“The TVNZ Complaints Committee received 536 formal complaints for Naked Attraction in late 2017. Formal complaints are those in which the complainant identifies grounds for a potential breach of the Broadcasting Free to Air Code of Practice,” TVNZ said in its response.

The Broadcasting Standards Authority are meeting this week to consider whether the show breached broadcasting standards.

TVNZ spokeswoman Rachel Howard said she was aware there were just over 500 complaints but said that the show rated highly among TVNZ 2’s target audience of 18 to 49 year olds.

Every week and average of 190,000 people in that age bracket watched the show, she said.
