Kira Cochrane at the Guardian on the history of the British Board of Film Classification:

These included indecorous dancing, unnecessary exhibition of underclothing, subjects dealing with premeditated seduction of girls, the effects of vitriol throwing, and materialisation of the conventional figure of Christ.
