Personally I don't think the show would be worth watching without the sex and violence, but that might just be me. To actually answer your question though I think many of the sex scenes actually establish character and subtleties of plot, and the same might also be said of the violence. According to Here be Geeks about 2-3 minutes have been cut from each ...

A simple Google search led me to the Guidelines of Central Board of Film Certification. The article states: The Cinematograph Act lays down that a film shall not be certified if any part of it is against the interest of the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security of the State, friendly relations with foreign States, public order, decency ...

I saw the film and I clearly remember seeing some swastikas. I think in Film and art it is generally tolerated that swastikas are shown, e.g. in Indiana Jones and Inglorius Basterds (although there is no swastika on the dvd casing for Inglorius Basterds) According to this document from the Bundespr├╝fstelle: Wesentlich problematischer und zudem in ...

In the United States, there isn't a strict analogue for your Censor Board. Here, the First Amendment to the US Constitution provides protection to film makers, ensuring the government won't censor their work. However, the law doesn't prevent voluntary censorship, which is where the MPAA comes in. They're a trade group of movie studios who created a ...

Matt and Trey never censored South Park. The networks airing their show do the censoring as required by their broadcast licenses. A broadcast license is relative to the country that issues it. An Americian station's license is not govern by licenses required in Canada, even if their air waves cross the border. So you can watch an episode in Canada from the ...

Most of the time, they are not done by producers or the directors. Generally basic broadcast TV channels do this. They use a person to re-voice some part whose voice sounds like the original actor or actress. But sometimes, procucer or director shot an alternative scene as the the censored version. Like in Ghostbusters: Original Line: "We came, we saw, ...

Dubbing is done exactly how you'd imagine. A voice actor is put in a sound booth and asked to read clean versions of lines while audio editors watch the scene to line it up. Usually this is done by impressionists because it's cheaper than having the actual actor do it. There's an AMA on reddit with a guy who oversees these for a living. These are done ...

Matthew Foscarini's... ...Answer is, pretty much. Just to extend a bit: you may still see recent episodes with bleeps. Matt and Trey explained in an interview that sometimes they use real children to make the voice acting. When this happens the script does not have actual cursewords but stuff like: Shat! Frog! Mother Froster! :) . And then the bleep ...

I'm going to try and answer this, but my first problem is identifying exactly what you mean by "no cuts, no dubs, no censorship". As you rightly point out, some directors insist on having final cut privilege (and I'll list a few in a moment), but to my understanding if they insist on that, the rest will automatically follow. What I mean is that even if only ...

And to answer your second question, the MPAA doesn't explain their criteria. A lot of directors guess at what is acceptable, and will even throw in some obvious, over the top scenes in hopes that something else (what they really want) will pass through. See "Censor Decoy" and "Getting Crap Past the Radar" on tvtrope.org's page.
