Violence Halts TV Screening: The 1964 Michael Caine film "Zulu," depicting a famous British imperial battle against a Zulu army, was withdrawn from South African television over the weekend because it was considered too violent. Critics said the film, which was approved by both British and South African TV censors in the 1960s, was censored because of the political ramifications of depicting black-on-white violence. But a spokeswoman for the state-run South African Broadcasting Corp. said the station withdrew the film merely because of a perceived wave of viewer sentiment against TV violence.
