Regina v Video Appeals Committee of British Board of Film Classification (ex parte British Board of Film Classification): Admn 16 May 2000

Where a video might expose certain possible viewers of it to harm because of its content, that factor could be allowed for in the decision whether to grant or withhold a certificate, but could not lead to an automatic refusal of such a certificate. The inability to quantify the number of minors who might see and be influenced by a video was not conclusive that it should not be certified until such evidence was available.
