Office of Film and Literature Classification
This item from community radio station 2SER's weekly Media Magazine program looks at the standing committee of Attorneys General considering a range of new measures restricting and banning certain types of video games, both for sale and public use. Richard Harris speaks to David Haynes, Deputy Chief Censor from the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLCB).
2SER, based in Sydney and operating since 1979, is one of more than 400 licensed community radio stations in Australia. Community radio is often responsible for supporting local and underrepresented news, perspectives, music and culture. By contrast, this item is of national importance and provides an excellent insight into the OFLCB's thinking around game classifications. The interview is styled as a conversation which makes it more of a personal experience for the listener. This clip is an excerpt from a larger conversation that runs for over eight minutes
