Imagine being arrested for taking pictures of a farm, harassed for reading a storybook to children, or jailed for displaying a photograph in a museum. Censorship like this seems unimaginable, but it’s real and happens every day. Bleeped tells these stories. Each episode relives a David and Goliath tale of an individual who triumphed over censorship from a powerful organization, showing that if you’ve been wronged, you can fight back and win!
