The Nine Network has agreed not to broadcast a 60 Minutes story about adolescent suicide following concerns by anti-depression advocates Beyond Blue.
In the Victorian Supreme Court today lawyers told Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth it would not proceed with the report, ‘Searching for Answers’ by reporter Tara Brown.
The outcome follows representatives from Beyond Blue and the Victorian Education Department viewing the material, which was believed to have profiled the issue directly linked to a Victorian school.
Beyond Blue and the Victorian State Government sought an injunction on the story following concerns it could trigger copycat attempts.
Two weeks ago 60 Minutes was thrown into disarray at the last minute when the injunction prevented the story from going to air.
Nine had maintained it had the co-operation of the families involved in the report.
