The American broadcasting company CBS, which has owned the rights to show AIDS drama Philadelphia on TV since 1995 but which still hasn't shown the film, has announced that the movie will finally get an airing. Previously it had been gathering dust because of "the sensitive subject matter and many harrowing senes" - in other words, it might cause adverse reaction among gun-toting rednecks. Before you start thinking that this shows an admirable turn-around in attitude, bear in mind that Tom Hanks is big news in the States at the moment thanks to Saving Private Ryan, as is Antonio Banderas for The Mask of Zorro.
