The Lolita Story (1998)

One-off documentary about the controversy surrounding Vladimir Nabokov's story about a girl and her lusting stepfather. The book was first adapted for film in 1962 by Stanley Kubrick, but the latest movie version from director Adrian Lyne has stirred a fierce debate on censorship. The programme also looks at the struggle to publish the book in America, and the story's influence on popular culture and thinking.
