Hello and welcome to the BBFC’s Education Resources. This area of the site is for students and teachers. Whether you’re researching an essay or looking for information on the age rating of a favourite cult movie, you’ll find all you need here.

This is inside information from the people in the know at the BBFC. Our Education Resources are an essential tool for students and teachers across the UK with an interest in investigating UK film, DVD and video on demand (VoD) age ratings, the history of video game regulation, the British media, and media regulation and censorship. We hope it also provides useful background information for those studying film and the media more broadly.
