Appendix 5: Guidelines for BBC Commercial Services on Editorial Integrity and Independence from External Interests

Game Shows


We must conduct our game shows with integrity and probity. We must ensure that contestants are treated fairly and with respect, prizes are accurately described and appropriate, and clear rules are published.

The editorial content of the show should not be unduly influenced by commercial considerations, for example questions should not relate to a sponsor or a prize donor or its products or services.

The acceptance of any donated prize and any reference to the prize donor or a programme sponsor must be in accordance with the Advertising and Sponsorship Guidelines for BBC Commercial Services.
