^What's it called and when's it on? I'll 'tape' it on the Sky+ box, should be interesting, thanks for the heads-up. ;)

It was called Video Nasties : Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape. Here's an IMDB link if you want to look it up, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1740712/.

Its definitely worth a watch, it features some good interviews with directors that were influenced by the "video nasties" as well as some of the people responsible for the banning and censorship of these films. It was part of their season of the banned, usually films are reshown again after a couple of weeks so lets hope this is too. Theres been some cracking films shown on the horror channel recently, this friday they're showing the uncut version of The Exterminator. Not seen it since i was a kid so hopefully it'll be just as good as i remember!
