Hammer film cuts
For any fan of Hammer horror movies there is a real fascination with the various cuts made to many of their output. Legendary tales of excised scenes of sex or violence have floated around for decades often turning out to be lies and/or exaggerations. At this LINK you will find Tim Rogerson’s carefully created list culled from Wayne Kinsey's book Hammer Films - The Elstree Years. With its exhaustive reproduction of BBFC correspondence with Hammer on their later films (which is where the heavy cuts were made) it appears to be the definitive piece laying out what was cut, if it has been restored and where to find the uncensored versions today.
