I was watching repeats of Countdown - a music video show that used to 
run in Australia, from 1987. They commented that a video clip by Wang 
Chung (a popular group of the time) had been banned by the BBC because 
of fears that it could spark seizures in people with photo-sensitive 

Does anyone know anything more about this (any British people who liked 
Wang Chung at the time and recall this happening, for example)?

As an historian I have been interested for a while in the histories of 
what we do and where it came from...
