    Cutting is a problem too. They cut all the stripper shows out of early 'Minder' episodes, and that bit in 'The Sweeny' where you see Diane Keene's jugs.

    There's also a whole episode of 'The Professionals' that they never show, the one where we find out that Bodie is a racist, even though other episodes make it clear that he isn't.

    And 'Porridge' where they blur the page 3 girls that are pinned up on the cell wall. Tragic beyond belief.

    Watched the last half of 'The Spy Who Loved Me' the other night, there's a bit where they break into the control room on the tanker and slaughter all the technicians. That was cut almost completely. Bond shouts 'Cease fire' but they haven't actually fired at all, then you see all these blokes lying dead. How did that happen then? Just makes no sense.

    one of the things i like about my collection is they ar usually uncut and sometimes retro refitted with the cuts that were made to get a rating from censors. woke tv and film reshowing is the equ of burning books. it must be fought tooth and nail

    Strippers, fighting, dodgy deals, and putting one over on the law. Proper entertainment, no stupid message.

    This Aviva ad where they are teetering on the rocks crossing a stream - which is quite clearly no more than an inch deep. From the look on the woman's face you'd think she was swinging over the Grand Canyon on a trapeze.

    She looks a lot like my Aunty Jill. But it's not her.

    USA wont be reducing its carbon footprint after the republican senior court has banned them ordering it...(obviously backed by 'big coal').
    so we might as well give up on our efforts as the US produces 14% emmisions all by its polluting self.

    The only positive from that is we'll have someone else to blame apart from China.
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan
