I only really remember seeing one episode of this series, but it is pretty clear of the meaning of the title and the plot of all four episodes. Basically they take a period of time in Britain, I think it was the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, and explain all controversial and publicised things that were banned. It doesn't matter if it television, radio or products, there will always be something that not everyone is happy to hear, look at, buy or basically have around. The episode I saw was about all things banned in the 80s. The highlight for me was the ban of many films such as The Evil Dead and Friday the 13th, and releasing them to people on video, they were referred to as the best selling "video nasties". Anyway, you get the idea of the series from only one programme, and it was quite interesting to see the types of things people want banned. Worth watching!
