I'm sure that good ole Maggie Thatcher (hell roast her cotton socks) had a controlling stake in the BBC at that time #facistgroovethang

@kemiladashdot Bah - here are a couple more links, one to the video again and the other to a live version. Hopefully one will work where the main video won't. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ar7DgREshAk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPTvkIwEsB0

@BarneyRubble Here's an interesting list of songs that have been banned at one time or another. I particularly like the list related to the First Gulf War. http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/banned.html

@pjcj Wow, that's an extensive list... and some very tenuous links with war of any kind. I love the fact that the BBC won't admit to even having a banned list :-)

@pjcj Great list. I bought Massive Attacks's 1st album back then, but my copy's just called 'Massive'

Thanks for the links. 'Shipbuilding' performed by Robert Wyatt and written by Elvis Costello also had an impact during The Falklands conflict.

@Bukowski I seem to recall Annie Nightingale doing a show on that subject 30 years on. Aha, here it is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01kgl1z And I'm sure that Annie Nightingale used to play Six Months In A Leaky Boat anyway ...

@pcjc Well, during the Falklands bash, the Beeb lost market share but the commercial stations just kept on spinning on. The BFBS however were even more controlling than the Beeb.
