The 9pm watershed in radio
Although a fixed Watershed does not apply to radio in the same way as to television, scheduling considerations must be taken into account in the UK.
For radio, the inclusion of sensitive topics and strong language depends less on time of day than on editorial merits and signposting of programme content.
On the music networks and elsewhere, care should be taken with language and subject matter at times when children are known to be listening.
In the case of "live" programmes, producers should anticipate any potential problems and brief participants before they go on air.
Presenters should be aware of how to deal with a difficult situation.
