Concern over televising Spain bullfights

Evening programmes featuring violent entertainment raise worries about exposure to children.

    Bullfights were banned at the start of this year in the autonomous region of Catalunya.

    But in the rest of Spain they continue and, aside from the cruelty issue, what is causing outrage now is that TVE is airing its coverage in the early evening when young children could watch.
