Ban This Filth! Letters from the Mary Whitehouse archive. On one hand, given the extraordinarily patronising way she was treated by the BBC, I can't help but feel a bit more sympathy towards her. On the other, given that you hint towards her links with Moral Rearmament, and their links with the right-wing shadow structures, to refer to the whole topic of financing with the sentence below is something of a cop out:
"[Clean Up TV] and [the National Viewers and Listeners Association]'s accounts are one realm of the archive to which access is forbidden, but 'the Lord will provide' does seem to have been the mantra of those organisations in terms of funding."
There's the glimmer of a very interesting topic here, but this book isn't it - shallow, and never quite sure of the tone it wants to take; cheap laughs, grudging respect, or something more interesting. (The involvement of Trunk Records in its inception suggests the former, as do the captions in the photos, but the text is surprisingly more ambivalent.)
Mary Whitehouse awaits a proper examination - oh for a British Rick Perlstein, that's what I say.
