BBFC to mark centenary year with fucking awesome retro cards

Monday December 19th 2011


As if to make amends for some of their totally bonkers decision-making this year, the BBFC have announced that six retro Black Cards (based on those used in 1913, the 1940s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and the present day) will be reintroduced in 2012 to mark their 100th year.

The first (above) is based on the original 1912 theatrical card, first shown in 1913.

Can’t wait to see this rolled out across some of 2012’s ropier material:

See? It makes anything look classy.
