More than just a ‘nasty’ decade: Classifying the popular in the 1980s
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Chapter
This chapter moves beyond studies of the 'video nasties' to consider the BBFC's approach to other films, including popualr blockbusters like Return of the Jedi and Raiders of the Lost Ark. This work draws attention to emergent discourses at the Board relating to children, the importance of the teen audience and violence in a variety of generic formats.
