BBFC a few points

The BBFC was raised in a lesson today. While we won't look at it as a full case study its useful to be able to write a paragraph on it, as a comparison to PCC or OfCom.
Its a somewhat ambiguous organisation; created by statute but funded by the film industry (you have to pay to get a BBFC cert/rating), its effectively a self-regulator, though one with much more muscle than the PCC.
I'll add a few points later on Sweet Sixteen, Dark Knight, Last House on the Left, Baise Moi + Irreversible, touching on bias to conglomerates/against Indies, and their use of social class as a factor.
