Watershed is a term used to describe a time in television schedules during which it is permissible to show television programmes which have 'adult content'. Adult content can be generally defined as having nudity, explicit sexual intercourse, graphic violence, strong language, or drug references or use. In the UK our watershed starts at 9pm until 5.30am before this time slot no programme that contains adult content should be shown.
