What is bbfc…  The British Board of Film Classification is an independent, non-governmental body which has classified cinema films since it was set up in 1912 and videos/ DVDs since the Video Recordings Act was passed in 1984.

The age ratings…

U.. • The U symbol stands for Universal. A U film is suitable for anyone aged four and over. • In a U only very mild bad language such as damn can be used. • The only sexual behavior shown in a U is kissing and cuddling, although there can be subtle sexual references. • If there is any violence in U it will be very mild. A U may include brief scenes where characters are in danger.

PG…  PG stands for Parental Guidance. This means a film is suitable for general viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children.  PG’s are aimed for kids eight or older.  Words such as ‘sh*t’ and ‘son of a b*tch’ can be used in a PG film, assuming there is a reason for it e.g. someone hurting themselves.  If there is violence it is usually mild and there will be no detail of the violence.

12A & 12…  Films classified 12A and video works classified 12 contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12.  Only viewers 12 and over can watch a 12 or 12A unless accompanied by an adult.  There can be strong language in a 12 and 12A such as f*** demanding on the circumstances.  In a 12 or 12A sex may briefly be portrayed.
