Czech Radio rejects listener's “pornography” complaint

26-07-2018

Czech Radio denies any wrongdoing after a listener complained about hearing “pornography” on its Vltava station. The listener called on Facebook for control bodies to investigate how she and her children had come to hear references to the male member in a Saturday morning broadcast.

A member of the Czech Radio Council said the head of Vltava would be called to explain the broadcast, Czech Television reported.

For their part, Vltava said the text was not lewd but had come from The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst, a book which had received the prestigious Man Booker Prize.
