    Monday 25th, 11.10pm Channel 4. Mark Kermode disects the film (which airs afterwards at 12.15am) and, according to rumour, shows us the filthy bits the BBFC deemed too "extreme" to be seen.

    I always liked the film and wondered just how far Ken Russell went in his depictions of debauchery in order to put the willies up the BBFC. I guess now I'll find out.
    Warners still have the UK DVD release of this one on indefinite hold for now, and this documentary was originally slated to appear as an extra on the disc.

    Oow, a definite watch, this one. Thanks mate! Thumbscrews and torture devices at the ready.:D It will be nice to see Oliver Reed again (not many of his films have been aired recently).:)

    Here the link to Mr Kermodes article in sight and sound magazine:

    Hell on earth

    Great article, but don't go expecting Warners to re-instate the footage. They're still "ashamed" of this film.
