Informed film and DVD choices for your grandchildrenCreated by Verity in Technology
تعلم هذا هنا الآن يرجى زيارة هنا Have you ever worried about whether you should take your grandchildren to the cinema, generic or what film you should pick? Do you know your PG from your 12A? Have you ever wondered how you can make an informed choice about what DVD to watch?
extra arbete hemma The British Board of Film Classification has launched a new website with information for carers at its centre. The new site www.bbfc.co.uk makes finding out about how films and DVDs are rated and whether they are suitable for you and your grandchildren quick and easy, meaning grandparents can feel more confident about selecting a film.
انقر هنا The new BBFC website places film content information at its core, making it easy for grandparents and others with child care responsibilities to find BBFCinsight, detailed information about every film rated by the BBFC. BBFCinsight is user friendly information which explains in detail what issues, like sex, violence, or bad language, are in a film and how strong they are. It will tell grandparents exactly what swear words are used, or whether a film has a bit of kissing and cuddling or something stronger.
يمكنك محاولة ذلك BBFCinsight is bespoke and written by the people who helped rate the movie, with the concerns of families in mind. It means grandparents no longer have to guess what issues like sex, drugs and violence might be in a film. Starting with a brief synopsis and the film’s genre and stars, it includes a short, snappy description of the issues found in any given film, video or DVD. For example, Skyfall is rated 12A, and the BBFCinsight states it contains moderate action violence and one use of strong language. If grandparents want more detail, they can click onto the longer version of BBFCinsight on their website or BBFC App (for iPhone or android). This goes into more detail giving key information such as how much violence is in the film, what this looks like, the tone and feel of the film, who it is aimed at, how and where any swearing occurs, who says it and why. Additionally it notes issues of particular relevance to those looking after younger children (for example, themes of bullying, smoking, divorce or references to bereavement).

There are no trailers rated 18 in the site, to protect any younger film fans who want to look up insight or use the education resources on the website. To view trailers rated 15 website users must submit their date of birth.

There are activities, timelines and case studies aimed specifically at students, as well as articles and archive materials of interest to film fans or anyone keen to find out how BBFC decisions were made in the past and how they are made now. For younger children the BBFC has a child-friendly site called CBBFC.

BBFCinsight is designed to be clear and unbiased, giving details about the age rating issues in a film, but also other details parents have told us they like to be aware of, such as examples of mild language, or even themes such as divorce or bereavement that may not impact on the age rating, but might upset some children. Parents can find a short summary of BBFCinsight on DVD boxes and cinema posters and more detailed BBFCinsight is published on the website and the BBFC iPhone and Android Apps.”
John Carr, key adviser on internet safety to the UK Government and Executive Board member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) said: “BBFCinsight and the new BBFC website will prove incredibly useful to parents navigating the wealth of online film content available to them and their families. By providing detailed information about a films’ rating before it’s released, the BBFC is equipping parents with tools that are timely, intuitive and provide information at a glance, as well as a more in-depth explanation about what their children are going to see. Parents should not have to struggle to find out whether a film or DVD might upset their child or another family member and the BBFC is helping to ensure this is something all families can prevent. ”
What about films online?
Lots of households now have subscription to Video-on-Demand services or regularly watch films online. In 2011 independent research carried out for the BBFC found that 85% of those surveyed think it is important to have consistent BBFC classifications available for Video-on-Demand content, rising to 90% amongst guardians of children under 16. As well as providing detailed BBFCinsight for every film classified, the BBFC also provides a service for streamed and downloaded content, which launched in collaboration with the home entertainment industry in 2008. The service is not required by law, but provides trusted classifications, category symbols and BBFCinsight to set-top box, video-on-demand and other online content providers who want to provide detailed film content information to their customers. Key film studios and Video-on-Demand providers using the BBFC service include Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment Europe, Warner Bros., Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Universal, BT Vision, Tesco/Blinkbox, TalkTalk, Picturebox and Netflix.
