This weekend on Documentary on Newstalk, producer Regan Hutchins tells the story of how thousands of books by Irish and International authors were banned in Ireland in the 20th Century. 

This documentary assesses the impact of a strict regime of censorship on writers and readers over a 40 year period, leading up to the 1970s and it hears how censorship and self-censorship is not a thing of the past.

Evil Literature and Censorship is presented and produced by award winning producer Regan Hutchins who is joined by Declan Kiberd, Aoife Bhreatnach, Jana Fischerova, Julia Carlson, Andrea Nagle, Noelle Dowling, James Kelly and Pól Ó Duibhir
