For media requests regarding access to our archive files please include a list of the film titles you would like to research, along with their release dates. This helps us find the relevant documents for you. If you are able to provide details about your research, or reasons for your enquiry this is also helpful to us.

We will check the availability of each file and contact you to arrange an appointment for you to view the records at the BBFC. We are not able to undertake any research into the contents of files on behalf of the media.
