Chinese censors attack ‘frivolous’ time travel dramas
China’s regulators have imposed tough new conditions on television production because such plots are “frivolous” and do not respect history.
Officials say that many dramas that feature time travel “lack positive thoughts and meaning” and feature fabricated plots.
But critics condemned the proposal and said it was the latest effort by Chinese censors to crackdown on dissent.
Chinese authorities are known for strictly censoring newspapers, film and TV programs that are deemed “unhealthy”.
