The producers of four TV programmes are to be fined for airing inappropriate content, including obscene language and speculation on winning lottery numbers.

The broadcasting committee of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission agreed to impose the fines at its meeting on Thursday.

Deputy secretary general Phakdee Manawet said the producers of “Tuen Ma Khui” (“Wake Up to Talk”) on the MCOT HD channel and “Toop Toh Khao” (“Slamming the News Desk”) on Amarin TV HD would be fined Bt50,000 each for carrying speculation about winning lottery numbers.

He said the makers of “Tuen Ma Khui” would be fined an additional Bt50,000 as a result of complaints the committee received regarding violations of public morality.

A Bt50,00 fine will also be imposed on the producers of Bright TV’s show “Khun Pak Yak Khui” (“Itching to Talk”) over the use of indecent language during a televised discussion about sex.

Administrators at Channel 8, Thairath TV and Work Point Entertainment are to be formally advised to be more careful about programmes involving superstitions and lottery speculation.
