  Music Videos at the BBFC...

Since 2014

Link Here 27th July 2015
Melonfarmers.co.uk
arms of the british governmentjpg logo In 2014 the government enacted an amendment to the Video Recordings Act ending exemptions from BBFC censorship for music videos (amongst others). Only those videos 'possibly' requiring a 12 certificate need to be submitted to the BBFC. The law provides a check list of content that should be submitted to the censors.

Also in 2014 the BBFC joined a voluntary industry initiative to provide age classifications for UK music videos on YouTube and Vevo (at least for videos from major studios).

The is page lists some of the early BBFC decisions after these measures came into effect. This generally shows that an awful lot of money is being spent for BBFC classification to determine whether strong language/sex references is 12 or 15. Hardly any material gets anywhere near the adult categories, no doubt a major disappointment or maybe surprise to the likes of the Daily Mail.

Surely these trivial age ratings for strong language and sex references could be assigned by the music producers/distributors without requiring this expensive and suffocating red tape of BBFC classification.

  • 2015 Levellers [Multi-Aspect] video
Summary Notes

Borne out of the anarcho-squatting free-festival scene of the eighties the Levellers have survived over 25 years of music press vitriol, drink and drug addictions as well as many barren years in the wilderness. But the band had seven consecutive gold albums throughout the 90s, sold out their own festival for the last ten years and run their own creative centre, the Metway. Via the eccentric artist, archivist, whiskey loving bassist Jeremy Cunningham we are taken on a journey; how the band rose to fame and how they survived. A potted history of 25 years of subsidised dysfunctionalism. An uplifting tale of battling demons, that reminds us that behind every band there is always a story of struggle for expression, acceptance and survival.

I Don't Care

I Dont Care Explicit

I Don't Care by Cheryl

Uncut at 15, cut for 12 and further cut for PG.

The BBFC commented in the 2014 Annual Report:

The original submission of the video for Cheryl Fernandez-Versini's hit song I Don't Care contained strong language, requiring a 15 classification. A subsequent version, with the language partially disguised, was classified 12. The distributor then chose to make further changes to remove all sight and sound of the strong language in order to arrive at a PG version of the video.

The string language in the song:

Waking up diagonal like an animal in a cold and empty bed, yeah Shaking off the trimmy you, I got shit to do and I'm ready to forget, oh yeah

I don't care And it feels so fucking good to say I swear That I don't care
