'G' is for Guidance

The red 'G' logo is a Guidance label. Any programme broadcast on one of Channel 5’s channels that is not suitable for everyone carries a ‘G’ logo.

Every 'G'  comes with information about why the programme has a guidance rating. These can include warnings for strong language, adult themes, drug use, sexual scenes or violence. This will be displayed alongside the 'G' logo.


When you click to play G-rated programmes you must first confirm you are over 16 years of age (or 18 years of age for some programmes) and accept our Terms and Conditions.
