Babylon was first released in 1980 , at the time the film was lumped with an X certificate to bar it's viewing by the younger part of it's target audience , did the Government of the day think it may contribute to the rising social unrest of the time with it's portrayal of racism and violence in London ?

 In the intervening 31 years the film has received a couple of outings on Channel 4 and eventually got a dvd release in 2008 .
