ABC next to review content for removal
"Community attitudes change across time and context," says ABC.
The ABC is next to review the content it has available, after streaming platforms began removing titles such as Summer Heights High and Little Britain.
The Age reports ABC is undertaking a “harm and offence” audit of its past and present programming.
“We are reviewing our content to ensure it meets current community standards and reflects our editorial policies on harm and offence,” a spokesman for the broadcaster said yesterday.
“Community attitudes change across time and context, and we recognise that the ways in which some characters have been depicted in the past might be considered deeply objectionable or offensive today.”
ABC is yet to screen Reputation Rehab in which Kirsten Drysdale and Zoe Norton Lodge look at our current cancel culture and scandals.
