Who is liable for PAYE and NIC deductions that haven't been paid to the Revenue?

If a Limited Company deducted tax and nic from it's staff but didn't pay it to the Inland Revenue - and the company then went bust - are the directors of that company liable for the PAYE debts or are they protected by their "limited liability"? Some of the IR guidebooks suggest that the Directors ARE responsible - is this correct?
