Movie Info

Julie Walters and Hugh Bonneville headline this "Masterpiece Contemporary" production detailing the true life efforts made by one well-meaning but hopelessly overzealous village housewife to clean up the British airwaves. Britain, the 1960s: Caring Christian housewife Mary Whitehouse (Julie Walters) is watching the BBC, and she doesn't like what she's seeing. Incensed by the blatant obscenity of such programs as Doctor Who, Magical Mystery Tour, and Monty Python's Flying Circus, she organizes a grassroots campaign to confront BBC director-general Sir Hugh Greene (Hugh Bonneville) to get the offending programs taken off the air.
