Does anyone have any knowledge on C4 censorship of programmes? Over recent months, I have noticed lines of dialogue missing from Friends, Simpsons and at least one film. A reference to Joey having a 3 in a bed romp was cut out of one episode of Friends. Other lines have been cut, resulting in audience laughter for no reason, the punchline having gone missing. C4 rather gave the game away recently, after showing a trailer for a Simpsons episode, just before it aired. The trailer had Homer mistakenly joining a queue for sex offenders to register. As he leaves, Moe arrives and says 'aw, there is always a queue'! 10 minutes later, during the programme, it just has Homer arriving and leaving, no words are spoken. Nothing happens, no comedy. Someone on C4 messed up there, editing the prog but, not the trailer. When the 1969 film Battle Of Britain was shown last year, the scene where a Polish pilot bails out over Kent was almost edited out of existence, for the first time that I have noticed over the many times I have seen it on TV. In the original, the pilot lands in a hayfield, walks over to a couple of farmworkers and says, 'good afternoon' in broken English. Mistaking him for a German, the farmworker says, 'Good afternoon my arse! Put your hands up you bosch bastard! That has always been included on each showing, until last year on C4. All we were allowed to see then was, Pilot, 'good afternoon', Farmworker, 'put your hands up!' So, 1, How much more censorship is there now, than there used to be? 2, Why don't they come clean and, say so beforehand, either by caption or announcement? 3, Has anyone noticed other channels censoring progs for our 'benefit'? In view of the other revelations recently, over competitions, phone ins, and scenes on many programmes being contrived or, 'managed reality' as the TV producers call it, shouldn't they be more open about it? More to the point, should C4 be making our decisions for us? We should decide what we want to watch and, make our own judgements on the content. Those who have not seen the programmes before are denied the chance to do this and, are thus being misled and treated dishonestly.
