Book2Book Wednesday 30 Mar 2016

The U-rated 1978 film Watership Down would be classified PG were it released today, the new head of the British Board of Film Classification has said.
BBFC director David Austin told BBC Radio 5 live its violence was "arguably too strong" for it to be rated U now.
He added the film also contains language that would be "unacceptable" in a film rated U under 2016 criteria.
