British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has indicated that his government plans to tighten restrictions on television programming before the 9:00 p.m. "watershed" hour and to launch a "review" to examine "routine violence" on children's programs and pornographic and violent content on the Internet, television, and in commercials. At a news conference, Brown said that the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport will join in a study to examine "the malign influences that are trying to operate through" television and the Internet.
