Age of On-Screen Violence

Few nights ago Croatian state television aired Mad Max II. Croatians fans of that legendary film soon discovered that the version being aired was different from the version being shown on the very same state television only few years ago. Some of the most memorable scenes were missing, including those depicting imaginative use of boomerang. It turned out that Croatian state television took the noble example of German network stations and erased all the scenes depicting graphic violence.

However, if the Croatian state television is serious about protecting its young viewers from straying to the path of evil, it should try a little bit harder. And the attention shouldn't be paid exclusively on violent films, at least according to this study.
