language
There is mild bad language ('bastard') as well as milder terms such as 'God' and 'hell'.
sexual violence and sexual threat
A woman is sexually harassed by her boss, who talks about ‘stealing a kiss’ from her and who makes an unwanted advance upon her which she finds threatening; he angrily stops when she recoils. Men wolf whistle at a female swimmer as she trains.
flashing/flickering lights
This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
A woman is subjected to the sexist behaviour and attitudes of the time, which are condemned by the work as a whole. There are also implied references to homophobia and discriminatory attitudes to non-British people, again set within a historical context. A man talks about the death of his son in an accident at sea and there are undetailed references to mental health concerns. We see characters smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol.
