BANGKOK, 20 June 2012 (NNT) -The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) is planning to summon Channel 3’s executives, for a clarification on the latter’s decision to air a female contestant painting on a canvas with her bare breasts.

Lieutenant-General Peerapong Manakit, chairman of the NBTC’s subcommittee on programme schedules and content, said the commission is demanding a meeting with the channel’s top executives to discuss inappropriate content in an episode of Thailand’s Got Talent, aired on June 17.

As Channel 3 is the sole license holder of the station responsible for all broadcasting programmes, Lt-Gen Peerapong said the channel could be found breaching section 37 of the 2008 Broadcasting Act.

The NBTC members recently held an internal meeting to deliberate on the broadcast segment and ruled that the acts should have been censored prior to the live audition.

By today’s evening, the NBTC will issue the broadcaster an administrative order, outlining guidelines for proper scheduling and content editing for broadcasting.
