Default Middle East censorship

I'm moving to Bahrain next month and after speaking to a shipping company in the UK, I'm unsure of what the laws are. As I expected, pornongraphy and material offensive to Islam is banned (as far as I am aware none of my possessions come under these categories!). I was intending to bring books with me - some novels and a few history books - does anyone know of restrictions on these? I also have a large DVD collection, does anyone know what will be allowed into the country (movies such as Gladiator, Spiderman, Lord of The Rings, and TV shows such as The Office and Phoenix Nights)? Finally, is there censorship of music CDs - just standard chart CDs (no Eminem or 50cent!)?
Any feedback would be appreciated!

I haven't personally shipped goods to Bahrain. But I can't see it being an issue, as long as there aren't pictures of naked women on the covers of the books/DVD's/CD's.

Thay can be dodgy about Jewish artists. Otherwise I can't imagine there is any problem. Bahrain is fairly open.
