TELL IT TO THE BEES is a drama in which a woman begins a relationship with the family doctor.

Sexual violence

A scene of sexual violence shows a man becoming violent towards a woman. He grabs the woman and forces her down onto a bed. He rips the woman's stockings and attempts to remove his belt, but the woman manages to escape before she is raped.

Threat and horror

Strong threat includes a scene in which a woman is forced to undergo an abortion. The distressed woman is pinned down to a bed but the detail of the abortion is not shown on-screen.

Injury detail

Strong bloody images show large blood stains on bedsheets and a woman's underwear in the aftermath of the abortion.

Sex

A scene of strong sex includes implied oral sex and sight of breast and buttocks nudity. In another scene, two boys see a couple kissing in the woods. The man places his hand in the woman's trousers but no further detail is shown.

There are scenes of discrimination towards lesbians including two scenes in which young boys use the term 'dykes'. A man is shown spitting on the ground as a woman walks past him but the discrimination is not endorsed. There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'bloody', 'hell', 'sod', 'shit', 'Jesus' and 'Christ'.
