5.0 out of 5 stars This book saved me
Complete, official history of the BBFC. Helped me a lot in completing my dissertation, and interesting without the research driven need to read. In fact, I may even read this again, for pleasure.

This book is edited by the BBFC so is factually accurate - unlike other books about the BBFC. Ideal for students of film and film regulation and also fascinating for anyone interested in the history of film in the UK.

3.0 out of 5 stars More like an academic disertation and print is too small, 10 April 2014

This review is from: Behind the Scenes at the BBFC: Film Classification from the Silver Screen to the Digital Age (Paperback)
There have been a number of books written about the BBFC.I was though looking forward to this as it was to utilise the archives.Unfortunately I was to be greatly disappointed.I appreciate that much material was lost during the war when the Boards offices were destroyed.However that is no reason for practically ignoring the first 50 years of the boards existence. which is dealt with in 50 pages.instead there is page after boring page about legislation from the 80s and 90s and how it affected the boards views.If you are currently studying media it will be of interest to you.If you are like me and are interested in the furore aroused by horror fims of the 30s go the National Archives in Kew and read the files there.By the way the print is tiny and the quotes are in pale type.Difficult to read without perfect vision.

This review is from: Behind the Scenes at the BBFC: Film Classification from the Silver Screen to the Digital Age (Paperback)
Bought as a gift. Looked interesting flicking through. Other than that, cannot review further. Why six more words? Very irritating!
