This is a recent article from the Royal Television Society. I don't know if it's actors, poor sound mixing and from the article I am not sure the BBC know either.

In the RTS article mention is made of doing a "domestic check" using a domestic telly - good for them!

The problem is the between programme material, whether it's adverts on commercial channels or idents / promos on the BBC, the levels are ridiculously high relative to the surrounding programmes.

With TV in stereo, or 5.1 the same problems arise.
As there is the possibility with TV broadcasting today to have more than one audio channel with a station, perhaps the broadcaster should provide a full dynamic range stereo or 5.1 audio channel for those who appreciate it, and for the same programme a mono, limited dynamic and frequency range audio channel for those just using the small speakers in a modern TV.
A bit of me thinks though: why should the broadcasters compromise to overcome the shortcomings of modern reproducing equipment?
