'j telephoned the BBFC and a spokesman told us: "The Exorcist is under consideration for a video release certificate. But I cannot confirm whether it will be classified or not. It's the first I'vf heard of it." ——————————————————————————————————5  e-mail screen@teletext.co.uk Big Screen, PO Box 297, London SW6 1XT. Fax: 0171 381 8525. Cinema Cinema On Stage Millennium

In fact, the NSA very much exists and has a Web site as www.nsa.gov which explains its functions and history.
