James Bond 'shaken' by China censorship


The James Bond movie Skyfall is finally opening in China, three months after it opened in the UK.

But the BBC's John Sudworth in Shanghai told Today presenter Evan Davis, that certain key scenes in the film had been cut - notably one where a French hitman shoots a Chinese security guard in Shanghai.

"A number of subtitle changes", had been made to the film, he said.

"The changes reflect the concerns of board of film censorship here that sees itself as a guardian of the image of the state and the Communist Party," he explained.
