British ratings are:|
U – (universal); suitable for all.
PG – (parental guidance); parents may consider some scenes to be unsuitable for their children, but children are not excluded from seeing the films.
12A – a child under 12 is not admitted to the cinema unless accompanied by an adult.
15 and 18 – no one under 15 or 18 respectively may see the film.
The same ratings are given to video cassettes and DVDs, except that 12A is replaced by 12. Nobody under 12 can rent or buy a 12-rated video or DVD.
The ratings are awarded by the British Board of Film Classification (which used to be more honestly named the British Board of Film Censors). The system is a voluntary one: the classifications can be overruled by local councils. , but in practice this rarely happens.
