TV Programme Classifications
1]General Audience (GA)
This would be a programme that would be acceptable to all ages and tastes.
2]Children (Ch)
This would be a programme aimed specifically at children, ie. the pre- teenage or very young teenage audience.
3]Young Adult (YA)

This would be a programme aimed at a teenage audience.
This is to say it would not be of great interest to an adult. However, it might deal with issues which affect the teenage audiences, eg relationships, sexual activity, sexuality, soft drugs.
Parents and guardians could expect that YA programmes might contain such material and may choose to limit their children's access.


4]Parental supervision (PS)
This would be a programme aimed at a mature audience, ie it might deal with adult themes, be moderately violent, frightening or contain an occasional swear word and the classification label invites parents or guardians to consider restricting children's access.
5]Suggested for mature audience (MA)
This would be a typical "post- watershed" programme which might contain scenes of sexual activity or violence, or the dialogue might be profane.
