100 years of the BBFC

A pretty interesting article  on the BBC about the history of the British Board of Film Classification (formerly, the C stood for Censors) as it celebrates its 100 year annivesary. It explains how ratings have changed over the years, and that a movie like Island of Lost Souls can eventually receive a PG rating after initially being refused classification and effectively banned. I wonder if a particular film from Serbia will be regarded as “suitable for all” within a few decades?
