I Only Watch 18s Mithers The BBFC: Part II

So you’ll all probably remember a while back when I emailed the BBFC to address my concern about having recently watched a 15 with an erection in it (I had mistakenly believed it was an 18).

Well, I sent another email to them the other day because I couldn’t stop thinking about a problem that had entered my mind whilst sitting on the toilet (it was unrelated to shitting btw – it just so happened that I was doing that when I thought about it). Here’s the email (click on it to enlarge):

It’s an interesting question right? WELL IT IS TO ME.

Anyway, the helpful lot at the BBFC answered my question – here’s their response:

Thank you for your email

As you know , under the Video Recordings Act (VRA) it is illegal 
to supply a video recording to someone under the age of the 
category the work is rated at. This is still the case if a work 
has been reclassified to a lower rating.

So in a situation where older stock of a title still existed 
with a higher rating, the age restriction would still apply even if 
there was also some stock with a lower rating.

I appreciate that does seem counter intuitive but such instances 
should be rare.

Yours sincerely

Joe
