[00:2.00]according to research published by Leeds University yesterday.

[00:3.00]The study found there was "remarkable agreement"

[00:4.00]about which television violence was serious and which not.

[00:5.00]Even a group of pensioners agreed that a violent sence in the wellknown film

[00:6.00]Pulp Fiction was tolerable because the dialogue and situation made it funny.

[00:7.00]Some people said they found the bad language in the film more offensive than the vioence.

[00:9.00]films like Pulp Fiction,

[00:16.00]The report gives interesting information information
