There must be something in the water here because I'm currently working on two projects at the same time about SA censorship which was, during apartheid, the worst such system in the world.  Buggedout

I'm working on a docco with a film company and the current censor board called me yesterday to see what we had for them to use in an exhibition, things like pictures, newspaper clippings etc.**

In some cases a little censorship might be excused.

It's just odd that in the space of less than a month, there have been 2 enquiries regarding the same subject.  The last time I had that was when I got 20 enquiries regarding material in our archives for the TV series Great South Africans back in 2005. Question

It only hit me the other day that I am almost a life long opponent of censorship and here I am helping our local censor board with a project: I need to go lie down.  Buggedout Wink

I haven't heard back from the www.fpb.org.za: hearing from them is like hearing from the tax dept  Buggedout but the other project director emailed me yesterday, asking when they could set up an interview.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
