Getting under the skin flicks
As the louche saxophone title music starts up and Raquel Welchs name flashes onscreen under narrator, this six-part documentary series states its intentions loud and clear.
Its a bawdy, slapdash romp through 100 years of celluloid sex, where the board of censors are the villains and the heroes are decidedly scantily-clad.
First shown in the US ten years ago, it shows its age with faintly ridiculous filler sequences and a galloping pace made passé by the purposeful stride BBC4 has accustomed us to. But theres no denying the fascinating subject matter, and this is a goldmine of rare footage.
