The X File

Film director Alex Cox tells the story of how the X certificate first came to British cinemas, and helped to cause a screen revolution in the 50s. Directors J Lee Thompson and Michael Winner, Hammer screenwriter Jimmy Sangster and former censor Ken Penry are among those who recall the effects on films and film-going when the X arrived in a haze of publicity in 1951.
