Putting the F-word in BBFC Film The Guardian.

A 15 certificate for Made in Dagenham tells Stephen Woolley that, despite the growing violence of recent 12A films, bad language is still the final frontier at the BBFC

Over three decades of bewildering confusion, my personal relationship with the British Board of Film Classification – as exhibitor, distributor, producer and punter – has been turbulent, fraught and surreal. There seems to be no sign of that changing, even though the BBFC has finally decided to let the public speak; it has held various “consultations” and “in-depth discussions”, and has concluded that the great British public want continuous, unmitigated violence, but won’t stand for a bit of swearing.
