Abstract
This project is about Censorship in television and movies: How it has changed throughout the years. This project will describe the past television shows and major movie productions’ use of nudity, profanity, and violence and what they did to protect censorship in our homes.

This project intends to demonstrate that even though you trust you children to watch appropriate show we can’t help what comes on every channel.
