Filth - The Mary White House Story Repeat on BBC 4

5th November , BBC 4, 10.00pm (repeat)

I will be honest it came as a bit of a shock to me. I didn't have a clue this was going to be on tonight. But brilliant that it was, un-fortunatley I missed it due to a showing of "The Corner Shop" with Foursight Theatre Company. Hope you all enjoyed it!

Here is the link to view it:

In 1963 an unknown housewife and teacher from the Midlands, Mary Whitehouse, embarked on a mission to clean up British television. Her crusade led her into battle with the man she held responsible for a tide of 'filth' - Sir Hugh Carleton-Greene, Director-General of the BBC.

With Julie Walters starring as Mary Whitehouse and Hugh Bonneville as her arch enemy, this is a drama inspired by real events that brings life to the battle for Britain's morals.
