This episode wasn't shown on the BBC, but only because it featured a "sadistic plot"
Seriously?

I had never heard that before. Did they ever reverse that edict? Has it ever aired in the UK? Anyone know other international instances of such censorship?
The U.S. ABC network refused to air the Avengers episode "A Touch of Brimstone" back in the '60s. The entire theme of the episode was considered too, well, kinky.



Hey, sometimes a snake is just a snake.

PBS took more risks though, like topless Valerie Perrine in "Steambath".
Unless I'm remembering wrong, Ms. Perrine's breasts were modestly covered by a towel throughout the play. Still pretty racy for American TV in 1973.
