    No, restricting film remakes, televisions programmes, and performances no preserve cultures, it will get rid of it quicker. By preventing the modernisation of timeless classics the old footage and outdated references to the world at the time will not match the needs of viewers of the future, causing them to look for an alternative.

    An interesting idea, I'd like this to be set out further in a bill however, sometimes a remake, or revisit of a classic show can add to it's cultural impact, see Dr Who as an example
    I don't know if Doctor Who counts as a remake, it took a bit of a break and had a revival which worked perfectly. It wouldn't be like having a Beetlejuice 2.

    Well they tried the film, which imo was good, but it got shelved again, although it would come under what I called a revisit, it certainly wasn't a remake

    I am grateful for the debate and comments made by others in the House. I think there is a view that film should not be included. I will consider how a scheme could be introduced.
