Notice Concerning Enforcement of Propaganda Discipline, Preventing Dissemination Activities Violating Regulations

Posted on Updated on

In June 2002, SARFT circulated the “Notice Concerning the Good Welcoming of the Television Propaganda of the 16th Party Congress”, and in July, the “Notice Concerning Earnestly Implementing Television Drama Distribution and Broadcast Management”, which adjusted the golden hours of television drama broadcast every evening, namely the originally stipulated 19:00 – 21:30 was adjusted to 19:00-22:00. SARFT required all levels’ television broadcast organs to strictly implement this stipulation, and imported dramas and coproduced dramas may without exception, not be broadcasted in this period without SARFT agreement. If all levels’ television broadcast organs strictly implement this, and are consciously aware of observing propaganda discipline, it will further stimulate our country’s domestic television drama flourishing, further standardize television drama broadcasting order.

In order to examine the implementation situation of this stipulation, SARFT has issued the “Notice Concerning Golden Hours Television Drama Broadcasting Situation Examination”, the “Notice Concerning Reiterating Golden Hours Television Drama Broadcasting Regulations” and the “Notice Concerning Golden Hour Television Drama Broadcasting Situation Examination”, respectively in January, September and November of 2003, the absolute majority of television broadcasting organs strictly implemented this SARFT stipulation, obtaining a desirable broadcasting effect. But, at present there are still a few television broadcasting organs that have orders but do not obey them, have prohibitions but do not stop their actions, without regards for repeated State controlling authority orders, see propaganda discipline as child’s play, without authorization broadcast imported dramas and coproduced dramas in this time period without SARFT agreement. What is especially necessary to point out is that a number of non-satellite channels open a so-called “930 Theatre” without authorization, and broadcast imported dramas and coproduced dramas every evening around 21:30 without SARFT agreement, gravely violating SARFT propaganda discipline, disordering television drama’s regular broadcast order, bringing about extremely grievous social influence. Therefore, these requirements are put forward:

I, All levels’ television broadcast organs conduct speedy examination of the channels under their administration, all those conducting the above activity violating regulations must be immediately rectified, and may not delay implementation for whatever reason.

II, All levels’ television broadcast organs opening so-called “930 Theatres may not broadcast imported dramas and coproduced dramas during the golden hours from 19:00 to 22:00 without SARFT agreement.

III, All provincial-level radio and television management entities must conduct a one-time re-examination of the television broadcast organs under their authorization, of all those in which broadcast activities violating regulations are discovered, the responsible persons and responsible work units must be strictly dealt with according to radio and television management regulation.

IV, All provincial-level radio and film management entities must report to the SARFT General Editing Office before 30 March of that re-examination situation

关于严肃宣传纪律,制止违规播出行为的通知

2004年3月3日,国家广电总局向各省、自治区、直辖市广播影视局(厅),中央电视台、中国教育电视台发出《关于严肃宣传纪律,制止违规播出行为的通知》,《通知》指出,2002年6月国家广电总局下发了《关于做好迎接党的十六大电视宣传的通知》,7月又下发了《关于切实执行电视剧发行播出管理的通知》,对每晚电视剧播出的黄金时段作出调整,即从原定的19:00至21:30调整为19:00至22:00。总局要求各级电视播出机构严格执行这一规定,未经总局同意的引进剧和合拍剧一律不得在此时段内播出。对此,各级电视播出机构严格执行,自觉遵守宣传纪律,进一步促进了我国国产电视剧的繁荣,进一步规范了电视剧的播出秩序。

为检查这一规定的落实情况,总局又于 2003年 1月、9月和11月先后发出《关于对黄金时段电视剧播出情况检查的通知》、《关于重申黄金时段电视剧播出规定的通知》和《关于对黄金时段电视剧播出情况检查的通报》,绝大多数电视播出机构严格执行总局的这一规定,取得了良好的播出效果。但是,目前仍有个别电视播出机构有令不行,有禁不止,无视国家主管部门的三令五申,视宣传纪律为儿戏,擅自播出未经总局批准同意在这一时段播放的引进剧或合拍剧。尤其要指出的是,一些非上星频道擅自开设所谓的“930剧场”,在每晚的21点30分左右播出未经总局批准同意播出的引进剧或合拍剧,严重违反了广播电视宣传纪律,扰乱了电视剧的正常播出秩序,带来非常恶劣的社会影响。为此,特提出如下要求:

一、各级电视播出机构迅速对所辖各频道进行自查,凡有上述违规行为的,立即纠正,不得以任何理由拖延执行。

二、各级电视播出机构开设所谓的“930剧场”在19:00至22:00黄金时段不得播出未经总局批准同意播出的引进剧或合拍剧。

三、各省级广播电视管理部门必须对所属的电视播出机构进行一次复查,凡再发现有违规播出者,要依照广播电视管理的相关法规对责任人和责任单位进行严肃处理。

四、各省级广播电视管理部门须将本次复查情况于3月30日前报国家广电总局总编室。
