The content of games with a PEGI 3 rating is considered suitable for all age groups. The game should not contain any sounds or pictures that are likely to frighten young children. A very mild form of violence (in a comical context or a childlike setting) is acceptable. No bad language should be heard.
Video games that show violence of a slightly more graphic nature towards fantasy characters or non-realistic violence towards human-like characters would fall in this age category. Sexual innuendo or sexual posturing can be present, while any bad language in this category must be mild. Gambling as it is normally carried out in real life in casinos or gambling halls can also be present (e.g. card games that in real life would be played for money).
Game content with scenes or sounds that can possibly be frightening to younger children should fall in this category. Very mild forms of violence (implied, non-detailed, or non-realistic violence) are acceptable for a game with a PEGI 7 rating.
This rating is applied once the depiction of violence (or sexual activity) reaches a stage that looks the same as would be expected in real life. The use of bad language in games with a PEGI 16 rating can be more extreme, while games of chance, and the use of tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs can also be present.
The adult classification is applied when the level of violence reaches a stage where it becomes a depiction of gross violence, apparently motiveless killing, or violence towards defenceless characters. The glamorisation of the use of illegal drugs and explicit sexual activity should also fall into this age category.
A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child. U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the BBFCinsight.
General viewing, but some scenes may be unsuitable for young children. A PG film should not unsettle a child aged around eight or older. Unaccompanied children of any age may watch, but parents are advised to consider whether the content may upset younger, or more sensitive, children.
Films classified 12A and video works classified 12 contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. To help them decide, we recommend that they check the BBFCinsight for that film in advance. No one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video work.
No one younger than 15 may rent or buy a 15 rated video work.
No one younger than 18 may rent or buy an 18 rated video work. Adults should be free to choose their own entertainment.

Ancient history is a fascinating thing, but it can seem rather dry if presented in a book. Compton' s Atlas of the Ancient World takes a look at no less than 44 major ancient civilizations exiting from the earliest times through to AD 500, and brings them to life in a multimedia environment. Narrated commentary, animations, maps, even ancient music and interactive excavations all have a part to play. The interactive excavations are particularly good fun. They allow you to peck away at tombs, temples and so on, pointing at objects you discover to learn more about them. Tableaux of everyday life provide a slightly less gruesome insight into how people lived in several of the civilizations covered in the CD-ROM, but operate in the same point-and-click-for-information way. The CD-ROM seems to have primarily been designed for browsing through a civilization of interest. Civilizations are ranged along a timeline, and you can click on any one to go to its information. But the indexing is relatively basic, with simple a-to-z lists rather than a search tool that allows you to look for specific ideas. This is fine if you want to learn more about specific civilizations but not so useful if you want to compare attitudes to, say, religion or education, across different civilizations. This is a restriction that makes the CD-ROM less suitable for researching school reports than it might otherwise be. But it is a pleasant disk to browse through and certainly contains plenty of information.
