Television Censorship, film

Banned film - The Texas Chain Saw Massacre - was aired recently
In modern times, censorship refers to the examination of books, periodicals, plays, films, television and radio programs, news reports, and other communication media for the purpose of altering or suppressing parts thought to be objectionable or offensive. ...

The main goal of television censors since the beginning of television broadcasting has been to avoid government censorship. Just like movie and radio censors before them, they turned to self-censorship in their efforts to avoid censorship from outside their industry.

A new poll on film censorship suggests four out of five viewers would rather censor their own viewing, rather than watch poorly cut films. The study, Making Sense of Censorhip, found that three quarters of those surveyed thought cuts in movies shown on television were the least appropriate methods of controlling content.

The new poll, based on 900 interviews, was commissioned by Film Four to tie in with a conference on attitudes to censorship at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts on Friday.

Eighty two percent of those polled believed they should be able to make up their own mind what their household watches.

But most stressed that clear information should be given regarding the film's content and suitability.
