Empire's BBFC Ratings Podcast Special

A.K.A. 'What's a 12A for, anyway?'

In an Empire Podcast first, readers posed their Twitter questions, queries and grievances about movie ratings direct to the man who oversees them on a daily basis, BBFC executive director David Austin.

Why was Gremlins rated 15? What ever happened to What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?'s 18 rating? What’s a 12A for, anyway? What happened with A Good Day To Die Hard? We made Austin a cup of tea, showed him to the hot seat and fired your questions at him for 55 fascinating minutes.
