I just read a news report from the BBC revealing that North Korea state-run TV has broadcast a British film for the first time in the country’s history.
I assume Bend it like Beckham, originally released in 2002, was chosen as it’s completely inoffensive to anyone – some might even say bland.
Nevertheless the BBC reported that “although the original is 112 minutes long, the version broadcast was cut to 104 minutes, suggesting some editing.”
Personally, I didn’t notice the eight minutes of North Korean slander but clearly Kim Jong Il did.
Which parts of the film would you censor? Let us know below.
