Netflix recently imposed a ban on all new productions from featuring smoking, and a warning on all material that features tobacco.
As I understand it,only where a case could be made on the grounds of artistic/historical reasons would a film/series featuring cigarettes be allowed to be aired.
All future films made by Netflix will omit smoking unless the writer and director can prove it is “essential to the creative vision” of the project.
A spokesman said: “Netflix strongly supports artistic expression. We also recognise that smoking is harmful and when portrayed positively on screen can adversely influence young people.
Yes, no? Good, bad?
What say you?
