For the exam, you need to be able to compare the BBFC and the film classification process to that of the past.

1. Read pp 4-25 in the BBFC student guide.
2. There is a more interesting way of looking at the same material (with pictures!) here
3. Create 7 posts, one to illustrate each time period in the history of the BBFC:
  • 1912-49
  • 1950s
  • 1960s
  • 1970s
  • 1980s
  • 1990s
  • 2000s
4. For each post/decade you will need brief notes on:
i. Important developments at the Board
ii. Important developments to the system of film regulation
iii. Any legal developments and their impact on the way films were being regulated at the time
iv. Wider social/ political/cultural issues of the decade
v. 1 or 2 examples of key films from the time period and the issues they raised

5. In a final post, sum up in no more than 5 bullet points how the Board and the process of film classification is different now to that of the past
