I'm put the BBFC book on pre-order as its relatively cheap.

I need to get my own stuff published before it is rendered obsolete. I am hoping to have an article on The Old Dark House published in the next issue of LSOH which will go into the censorship history in some detail.

Jack Reacher got a lot of complaints last year and The Woman in Black got most complaints in 2012. Parents bringing kids into the 12A and saying the movies should have been 15.

Its the same in the USA where complaints focus ob the violent content if PG 13 films. The good news is that the complaints are about category and not censoring or banning.
