3.0 out of 5 stars and mother makes 5, 30 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And Mother Makes Five - The Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Unless there was another version of this programme I must have missed quite a few epesodes back in the 70 s as I remember this as pure "family" entertainment.

I 100% agree with you-although it seems so long ago since I last saw it (can't wait for it to come out on dvd!) I can't think of any reason at all why this dvd should have an 18 cert.It's probably due to today's PC world gone mad and Network think there's something mentioned on it which would 'offend' people!?Perhaps Gary Glitter is mentioned?,though that would hardly bother me (though surely any reference to him would be edited out-though I wouldn't agree with that!)Anyway,I look forward to getting the dvd from a time before computers and the internet,but I still think that,overall,times were better then!

Its probably just an error - I'm fairly sure this was shown originally in the pre-6pm children's TV time during the 70's -
& would be no more than a 12 at most - unless of course it has some sort of anti-ethnic content (which was deemed acceptable at the time) -
in which case such a classification if coming with a specific warning about this on the box is probably justified.

Yep, that'll be it; it's today's PC World gone made on Elf N Safety, where DVD companies choose their own certificates and tell the BBFC that they want family sitcoms to have an 18 rating. You can't even leave a space after punctuation without the liberal elite BBC saying that you've probably offended a Muslim. You couldn't make it up!

Seriously though, folks, the real reason Amazon mark a lot of DVD pre-orders with 18 certificates is because they list them before they are passed by the BBFC. It's easier for them to presume the worst rather than guess PG and get a higher rating, which could lead to customer complaints.

And Mother Makes Five series one has a PG certificate, with the note "Contains mild sex references and innuendo."
