China Bans* Time Travel

Chinese television viewers will not be able to watch Doctor Who or Back to the Future any more.
The Chinese government has banned from television (or radio) any program which deals with* time travel.
The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) issued* a statement* which said “dramas which casually make up myths, have monstrous and weird plots,* use absurd tactics, and even promote feudalism, superstition,* fatalism and reincarnation are treating* the serious history in a frivolous way, which should by no means* be encouraged* any more.”
Vocabulary:
ban – zakázat
deal with – zabývat se
issue – vydat
statement – prohlášení
plot – zápletka
superstition – pověra
treat – pojednávat o
by no means – v žádném případě
be encouraged – být podněcován
Question for discussion:
Is time travel possible?
