  1. I do recall a similar censorship issue a while ago when the show Underbelly was banned in Victoria.

    • True, Underbelly was banned in Victoria. But if memory serves me right, a drama on the ABC in the 1990s was banned in New South Wales (“Blue Murder” I believe was the name of the drama) due to a court case in New South Wales, a similar reason why Underbelly was banned in Victoria.

  2. These days I wonder what is the point of banning a show from broadcast in a particular state? If I did live in Tasmania & I really wanted to watch the show I would simply do so online … using 1 of several different options. Seems somewhat pointless.

    • The reason Undercurrent is currently banned in Tasmania is that Sue Neill-Fraser’s appeal against the prison sentence for her alleged murder (what the documentary is about) is underway in Supreme Court of Tasmania, with trial hearing to resume in March.
