WITH A new president, Andreas Whittam Smith (right), and director James Ferman retiring, change is under way at the British Board of Film Classification. In Censored (8pm R4) Nick Higham finds out who the censors are and how they feel about their work: for most of them, sex on film quickly becomes a mechanical matter; but violence is another. The programme doesn't settle any arguments about censorship, but it does take them out of the abstract, giving them a human, practical face.

The Galton and Simpson Radio Playhouse (11.30am R4) has Richard Griffiths playing a French undertaker in an exhumed G&S TV script. The result is distinctly mild.
