|Language||Moderate Impact and Fairly Frequent. Crude language is used in casual conversation or for moments of frustration. It is strongly disapproved of. However, this language is not recommended for impressionable children who are not cognitively developed enough and may try to emulate it or want to normalise language of this nature.|
|Nudity||Low and infrequent there is one fleeting moment of an art-work that has nudity on it. |
|Violence||Low and infrequent violence is displayed mainly in an emotional context between husband and wife but may be distrubing or distressing to much younger viewers. |
|Prejudice||Frequent Mild impact Prejudice deals with issues of gender discrimination seeing women as sterotypes in the home. This may be distressing, harmful, upsetting or inappropriate for impressionable younger children. |
|Blasphemy||Blasphemy is Low impact and Infrequent and occurs by way of swear words or referring to icons or religious figures that might be offensive to certain religions. This is not suitable for younger children as they may find it harmful, disturbing or distressing. |
|Drug abuse||None (sic)|
