[ANSWERED] German Regulation of TV Programs, 1960s-70s

ANSWERED. Thanks, everyone!

Hello all,

Back to double-check one last thing before I go away for awhile.

Background: My MC has a mother from Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and she (his mother) grew up in the 60s-70s.

1. I'm aware of the federal organization that got started in the 50s to make guidelines for age-appropriateness when it came to writing/books, and the movie-rating system which has been in place for a very long time (and voluntary), which later expanded to include video games and the Internet.

I was also told that shows with violent content are regulated by putting them on at later hours so there's (supposedly) less of a chance of kids seeing it, but I wanted to ask, after TV started catching on in most homes, were the programs always regulated by putting things that might be too violent and so on for kids on at later times? I'm looking at the 60s-70s because I assume they had it done by the 80s, with regulations on tapes coming sometime in the 80s according to Wikipedia.

Googled: Age regulation German TV, German Media Index (by the German name for it), history of German media index

Thanks to all the patient people who have helped me in the past and continue to do so. :)
