British Censorship Board Watched Hours Of Paint Drying

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A British filmmaker wanted to protest fees required by a censorship board. Charlie Lyne submitted a film to the British Board of Film Classification, which he called "Paint Drying," which is what it shows - 10 hours of footage, 607 minutes of white paint drying on a brick wall. The board had to watch every minute of the video before giving it a U rating, which is suitable for audiences 4 years and over. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
