Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 25, No. 7. 1962.



In 1957. no features were banned, the only films which were refused certificates in the period being three ten-minute propagandist productions from Australia. Appeals were lodged with the Cinematograph Films Appeal Board and the Censor's decision was upheld on the first film, whereupon the two remaining appeals were withdrawn before hearing. An appeal against the deletion of a passage of commentary from a short Soviet film was rejected and the Censor's decision upheld.

The only other appeal concerned the Censor's projected treatment of a British feature, which he had offered to approve either with a (G) certificate if certain excisions were made, or with a (Y) certificate if no cuts were made. The appellant asked for a (G) certificate without excisions. The board upheld the latter course in favour of the appellant.
