The report continues: “The BBC is still standing firm on its decision not to show the advert for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). The corporation has said it has received “approximately” 1,000 telephone complaints and a further 10,000 by email. Rival broadcasters ITV, Channel 4 and Five have now agreed to air the appeal. Sky is still considering its position”.
