THE 11TH HOUR is a documentary on the problem of global warming presented by the actor Leonardo DiCaprio. It was passed ‘PG’ for mildly upsetting scenes.

The BBFC's Guidelines at ‘U’ state that problematic themes must be handled in a way that is ‘sensitive and appropriate for a younger audience’. In THE 11TH HOUR however there is a scene in which a seal pup is shown being culled with a baseball bat and another in which a dead body is seen floating in the New Orleans flood waters. Both of these were felt likely to upset younger viewers, making ‘PG’ more appropriate, where more serious issues may feature.

There were no other issues of concern in the film.
