Storyline

A feature length documentary charting the shifts in viewer's attitudes and tolerance since television began, X Rated: The TV They Tried To Ban was a 90 minute Saturday night special commissioned for prime time Channel 4 that explored what small screen images have shocked and appalled Britain. Set against the social history of Britain's last 70 years, the programme charted how our collective mindset has changed by way of the barometer of national opinion - the response of the viewing public. X Rated: The TV They Tried To Ban traced when, how and why these changes in attitude occurred using TV clips, interviews with the main protagonists on screen, campaigning groups, regulatory organizations and individual viewers who sat at home watching. X-rated: The TV They Tried To Ban looked back on the events that made viewers put pen to paper - and jammed broadcaster's telephone lines throughout the last 50 years. Written by Monkey Kingdom
