    Court lifts Malawi's 'Big Brother' ban

    Court lifts Malawi's 'Big Brother' ban

    Last Update: Sunday, August 17, 2003. 7:37am (AEST)

    Malawi's High Court has quashed a parliamentary ban on Big Brother Africa.

    The reality TV show has raised eyebrows across the continent.

    It is the latest of the worldwide Big Brother series, which takes groups of ordinary people, locks them in a house for months and broadcasts almost their every move.

    Parliamentary officials said parents had complained about boozing and sexual shenanigans on the series and most Malawians felt it might encourage immoral behaviour.

    But lawyer Noel Chalamanda said Parliament had overstepped its mandate when it banned the show on August 5.

    He said it had denied Malawians their right to free information and participation in cultural issues of their choice.

    Malawi Television director general Benson Tembo says the broadcaster will consult with its board before deciding whether to air the show, which has shocked many conservative viewers.

    Malawi - a deeply conservative southern African country of 10.6 million people - had a representative in the Big Brother house in South Africa.

    But viewers complained he was dull and evicted him six weeks ago. The show is now on day 83 out of 106.
