For my second objective I am going to look at who decides what is acceptable to be shown in our media.
- Government bodies (BBFC – British Board of Film Classification)
- Pressure groups, ordinary people wanting change. Mary Whitehouse – responsible to leading the campaign to clean up Britain’s TV.
Here I want to look in detail at what the classifications are for film and TV in the UK. I also want to look at what provoked reactions from people like Mary Whitehouse who felt that we were slipping into obscenity .
