For media requests regarding access to BBFC Archive files please let us have a list of the film titles you would like to research, along with their release dates. It helps us find the relevant documents for you if you are able to give detail relating to the research being undertaken, or your reasons for the enquiry. We will then check the availability of each file and contact you to arrange an appointment for you to view the records at the BBFC. The BBFC is not able to undertake any research into the contents of files on behalf of the media.
