Summary
The launch of Mary Whitehouse's 'Clean Up TV' campaign made the Christian school-teacher a media star overnight. Over the next 37 years, her name became a byword for censoriousness. All the letters this campaigner sent, and most of the many thousands she received, were preserved. Sifting through this unique compendium of outrage and affront, Ben Thompson uncovers a startling new perspective on Mary Whitehouse's stand against a tsunami of swearing and sexual license
