Ad ban 'threat' to children's TV
|A ban on advertising junk food before 9pm could wipe out the production of children's programmes, says a report. |
Commercial channels could lose £114m from such a ban, which is over double the amount they spend on children's TV, says producers' trade body Pact.
Media watchdog Ofcom is looking at ways to curb food adverts aimed at children, although it says a pre-watershed ban would be "disproportionate".
