* As long as there has been film there has been censorship. Charting the course of sexual, criminal and political sensitivity to film is a mini-season of programmes on BBC next weekend and a special Forbidden Cinema supplement to Sight and Sound, the magazine of the British Film Institute, published May 24.

Forbidden Cinema will profile cases of the censor's scissors, including the teen shocker, The Wild One (pictured right), sexual violence in Straw Dogs and the cuts ordered in a 1923 film of Oliver Twist, made in case the pickpocketing scenes gave people ideas. There are studies of the censorship of Battleship Potemkin, The Trip and The Evil Dead. Contact Sight and Sound, BFI, 21 Stephen Street, London W1P 1PL. Telephone: 0171 255 1444.

* The National Film Theatre, London, is running a "James Joyce's Cinema" film season and conference, beginning on June 1 with the screening of a 1967 film version of Ulysses. A conference, June 16, will discuss the significance of James Joyce as a partner in bringing the first cinema to Dublin, arranged during the author's stay in Trieste. Details from 0171 255 1444.
