PBS Cleaning Up Documentaries For FCC Approval

HBO has offered the free use of three recent documentaries it aired to PBS, in an effort to get the films in front of viewers who do not subscribe to premium cable/satellite channels. But PBS is an over-the-air network, making it subject to FCC regulation, and the network is planning to err on the side of caution, removing a few scattered curse words and non-sexual nude scenes in films about terrorist attacks and Nazi death camps.
