Australia’s national classification scheme has 'reel' problems November 25, 2019

MORE than 75 per cent of Australian parents of young children say the PG category for films, games and apps is too broad. And 88 per cent of them think an age-based system would be more useful to them than the present one.

These are the findings of an online survey conducted between July and October this year by the Australian Council on Children and the Media.

ACCM President Prof. Elizabeth Handsley said: “Well over 600 parents and carers, from all states of Australia, have responded, and most emphatically told us that the NCS does not give them sufficient information to judge whether cinema films and computer games and apps are suitable, especially for their young children.”
