Schedule 3        Explanatory comments
(subsection 5 (2))
  
Comments on section 7 (Local areas)
     3.1       The areas set out in Parts 1 to 4 of Schedule 1 are based on the pre‑aggregation service areas, but may have been adjusted to take into account matters such as:
                (a)    more recent Census data; or
               (b)    the level of diversity within the areas; or
                (c)    evidence of the way in which the licensee provides commercial television broadcasting services.
                The local area set out in Part 5 of Schedule 1 is not based on pre‑aggregation service areas, but on the current licence area. Account has been taken of the way in which the licensees in Tasmania are providing local content on commercial television broadcasting services.
Comments on section 8 (Material of local significance)
Subsection 8 (1)
     3.2       The test of whether material is of local significance combines the subject and the way in which the subject is presented. Under this Notice, material that interests people in a particular area is not automatically ‘material of local significance’.
                For example, a report about ‘drought in Australia’ can emphasise the effect of the drought on the Australian economy, or on a local area, or on both. The effect on the Australian economy is likely to be of interest to people in the local area, but the absence of a local emphasis means that it would not be ‘material of local significance’.
                Material can have both a national and a local element, and can have more or less local significance depending on how much emphasis is given to its relevance to the local area. Presentation and emphasis have a significant effect on whether the ACMA will treat the material as being of local significance.
     3.3       Most material of local significance is likely to be collected and prepared in the local area, using reporters and other resources located in the area. It is less likely that material prepared outside the local area, and distributed in a similar generic form to several licensees, will have an adequate local emphasis for this Notice.
     3.4       The following are examples of material that relates directly to a local area:
                (a)    material that relates to people or organisations in the area;
               (b)    material that relates to the activities of people or organisations in the area;
                (c)    material that relates to issues that arise in the area;
               (d)    material that deals with the effects in the area of an event that occurs elsewhere;
                (e)    material that deals with people, organisations, events or issues that are of particular interest to people in the area, in a way that focuses on the interests of people in the area;
                (f)    material that:
                          (i)    relates to a political matter or a matter of current affairs; and
                         (ii)    is in the form of discussion by, or statements or commentary from, people in the area;
               (g)    material about a sporting event that involves a person or team from the area;
               (h)    material about a sporting event that involves a person or team from a nearby area, whose principal support base includes the area, or a significant part of the area;
                (i)    material about market conditions that closely affect a major business activity in the area, such as prices of a commodity in an area where that commodity is produced on a significant scale;
                (j)    material about an individual in whom people in the area are particularly interested because of an association with the area, such as the individual’s having grown up, or lived, in the area.
                The examples are not exhaustive.
     3.5       Material that relates to events that occur in a local area, but is not material of the kind described in item 3.4, may still be material of local significance. However, material that deals with the event itself (or with its effects generally), without relating the event to the local area, will not be treated as material of local significance.
Paragraph 8 (1) (b)
     3.6       Material of local significance may relate directly to the licensee’s licence area rather than relating directly to any particular local area within the licence area. Similar to paragraph 8 (1) (a), the test of whether material relates directly to the licence area combines the subject and the way in which the subject is presented.
                In considering whether material relates directly to the licence area, the material is to be treated in the same way as the consideration of whether material relates directly to a local area, applying items 3.2, 3.4 and 3.5 to the licence area as a whole.
     3.7       The following are examples of material that relates directly to a licence area:
                (a)    material that relates to economic affairs in the area;
               (b)    material that relates to government in the area;
                (c)    material that relates to social issues that affect the area.
                The examples are not exhaustive.
Subsection 8 (2)
     3.8       An announcement of information about a person or organisation that provides a service to the community in a local area is an example of a community service announcement.
Comments on Schedule 1 (Areas of commercial television broadcasting licences)
Abbreviations used in descriptions of local areas
     3.9       The abbreviations refer to standard terminology used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, as follows:
 
(C)       =       City
(A)      =       Local Government Area (excluding Cities)
(M)      =       Municipality or Municipal Council
(RC)    =       Rural City
(S)       =       Shire
(T)       =       Town
Comments on item 2.3 of Schedule 2 (Points for material of local significance)
Item 2 of the table
   3.10       If material of local significance is repeated within an eligible period, the material will not accumulate points when it is repeated. An example is a news bulletin broadcast at 6:00 pm and replayed at 10:00 pm.
                However, 2 or more broadcasts of material of local significance in an eligible period will accumulate points if each broadcast forms a fresh editorial compilation.
Item 3 of the table
   3.11       If material that relates directly to a local area is presented in a news bulletin or a news update in the form of a report about sport, business, weather, science, medicine or other specific subjects, the material will accumulate points as news that relates directly to the local area.
                The traditional format of a ‘news bulletin’ is a program of 30 or 60 minutes, including advertisements. The traditional format of a ‘news update’ is a program of not more than 2 minutes that does not include advertisements. However, if other forms of news include material, in the form of a report about sport, business, weather, science, medicine or other specific subjects, that relates directly to a local area, the material may accumulate points as news that relates directly to the local area.
