Diary: Bloody Crazy Season...

January on Horror Channel

Horror Channel goes nuts in January with a Bloody Crazy Season!

Madness, mayhem and adult babies! Horror Channel goes nuts on Saturday nights in January with a Bloody Crazy Season, a celebration of out-there modern horror, headlined by the UK TV premiere of Attack Of The Adult Babies , directed by Emmerdale star Dominic Brunt. This outrageous and hilarious satire stars a whole host of TV favourites including Andrew Dunn, Kate Coogan, Joanne Mitchell, Charlie Chuck and Sally Dexter.

The season also includes the UK TV premiere of Lowell Dean's blood-soaked werewolf caper Another Wolfcop and the channel premiere of wacky zombie rom-com Ibiza Undead , starring Cara Theobold and Emily Atack . Topping off the season with copious amounts of slimy gore is Jacob Vaughan's comedy horror Bad Milo! 

 

 

Diary: Censored! Stage, Screen, Society at 50...

Until 29th January 2019. London's Victoria and Albert Museum marks 50 years since the Theatres Act came into force, abolishing state censorship of the British stage


Link Here 15th October 2018
Until 1968 plays that had the potential to create immoral or anti-government feelings were banned by the Lord Chamberlain's office or ordered to be edited.

The V&A exhibition includes original manuscripts with notes on what needs to be changed and letters from Lord Chamberlain explaining why the edits are required.

In the exhibition there are several pieces including a manuscript about the play Saved by Edward Bond. The play tells the story of a group of young people living in poverty and includes a scene in which a baby is stoned to death.

When the Royal Court Theatre submitted the play to the censor, over 50 amendments were requested. Bond refused to cut two key scenes, stating 'it was either the censor or me -- and it was going to be the censor'. As a result, the play was banned.

Before the act was passed, playwrights got around the law by staging banned plays in members clubs which meant they could not be persecuted since it was private venue. The continued success of this strategy and the reluctance to prosecute made a mockery of the Lord Chamberlain's powers and reflected the increasingly relaxed attitudes of the public towards 'shocking' material.

The first night after the Act was introduced, the rock musical Hair opened on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End. It featured drugs, anti-war messages and brief nudity, ushering in a new age of British theatre.

The exhibition runs until 29th January 2019.
