Department for Culture Media and Sport


We are responsible for the UK’s broadcasting framework.

We work closely with the regulators, broadcasting industry, viewers and listeners to increase choice, ensure healthy competition and maintain programme standards and quality.

Our role


We do not get involved in complaints about individual programmes or schedules. These are handled by independent regulators.
