THE EDITOR, Sir:
I TURNED on TVJ to watch it with my mother-in-law and children. TVJ is the family station, so I shouldn't have to consider about what comes over it when my children are watching. Not so, I soon realised. I had to quickly turn the television to another station, because on TVJ, there was a lively discussion with men and women talking about how bad the private parts of a woman can smell. Even though my children are teenagers and think about many things differently from me, they agreed with me and their grandmother that national television is not the proper place to have that discussion. It is very offensive to me and my family to put out that kind of programme on national television.
Where is the broadcasting commission to stop this from happening? What about the TVJ managers who give the nod and say yes, this kind of nastiness must go on national television? I have stopped listening to RJR because the same kind of nastiness use to come over it. When I feel to watch television with my family I know that I cannot turn on Jamaica's family, station.
