Australian Broadcasting Corporation Key Developments

The ABC to Close Brick and Mortar Shops and to Slash 300 Jobs

The ABC will close its brick and mortar shops and focus on online retail in a move that will slash 300 jobs. More than 50 ABC stores around the country will close, with the public broadcaster set to start ending leases with landlords. The change to an online shop front is in keeping with the changing retail environment. The company said it was no longer possible for it to sustain a large network of leased stores reliant on the sales of DVDs and CDS.

Suzanne Hudson Launches A Case of Unlawful Discrimination against the Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Suzanne Hudson, who is blind, has launched a case of unlawful discrimination against the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for their failure to provide audio description as part of their regular programming - a service that would make ABC TV accessible for the 350,000 Australians who are blind or have low vision. The Public Interest Advocacy Centre represents Ms. Hudson in her case, which will be heard in the Federal Circuit Court. Audio description is a second audio track that can be turned on and off. It describes the important visual elements of a television program - such as actions, scene changes, gestures and facial expressions - that a person who is blind or has low vision can't see. Ms. Hudson believes that by failing to make its television broadcasting service accessible for people who are blind or have low vision, the ABC has engaged in indirect discrimination.
