Six months, 160 lawyers, and a full-page ad in the New York Times later, Sky Atlantic are finally airing Alex Gibney's controversial documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief.

The two-hour long film, based on Lawrence Wright's book of the same name, traces the origins of Scientology all the way back to its founder, L Ron Hubbard, in the 1950s. Gibney, an Oscar-winning film-maker who brought us Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, and The Armstrong Lie, interviews eight ex-Scientologists for Going Clear, including film-maker Paul Haggis, and one-time John Travolta confidante Spanky Taylor.

Initially aired on HBO in the US in March, Sky Atlantic, which owns theatrical rights to Going Clear, was expected to air it a day later. But the film never appeared on its schedule, with the explanation that an air date had yet to be "confirmed".
