Censored!

Synopsis
Asks whether the ban on the film CRASH by Westminster City Council revealed a new and growing trend in favour of censorship, and who is to judge just what is depravity and how standards of taste and decency on screen should be decided. Joan Bakewell discusses the issues with Alexander Walker, Christopher Tookey, Nigel Wingrove, Tom Dewe Matthews and Christina Reees.
